, a shareholder and now Williams
' new executive director, has ruled out testing the famous British team's 2012 car. Williams test driver Susie Wolff
's husband, and Friday driver Valtteri Bottas
' manager, Wolff is also a racing driver.
He raced single seaters in the 90s and in 2002 finished sixth in the FIA's NGT (now GT2) championship. He also won a race in the GT1 class and more recently achieved success in Austrian rallying and won the 2006 Dubai 24 hour race. And a Youtube video of his Nordschleife lap record and spectacular 270kph Porsche crash is legendary in racing circles.
But Wolff, 40, insists he has no plans to test the Renault
-powered FW34. "As you know, I was more ambitious than talented and there is no ambition to drive a formula one car because I think it would just look ridiculous," he said.
Instead, in the wake of chairman Adam Parr's surprise departure, Wolff is taking his new job - helping Sir Frank Williams
to run the Oxfordshire based team - very seriously. "The answer is yes, I'm going to spend more days at the factory and I enjoy it, it's what I want to do now," he said. (GMM)
