Wolff representation amongst F1 bosses set to double with Susie’s timely appointment mooted

Toto Wolff may soon be set to see the public get a piece of how disagreements with his wife pan out in the public domain, especially if reports claiming that Susie will take on the role of team principal at Williams are anything to go by.

Authoritative sources such as Blick newspaper, Speed Week and f1-insider.com have claimed that Susie is leading the race to be named new Williams team boss.

Back in the day, Susie Wolff raced for Williams test driver when Toto Wolff was co-owner of the team.

Williams recently ousted its boss Jost Capito which came as a surprise to some.

“That surprised me a bit,” former Williams driver Ralf Schumacher said.

“I can imagine that the investors are a bit upset with progress. I almost feel a little sorry for Jost, because I think the management was a little too impatient.

“He needed more time and I assume that the divorce also came as a surprise to him.”

Schumacher felt that Williams will appoint an ‘internal successor’ next.

Another former Williams driver — Jenson Button — is another name that has been put forward as a potential successor to Capito and is seen as Susie’s main rival for the seat.

Reputed F1 journalist Roger Benoit believes that the aura of having a 40-year-old female boss would be too big a lure for Williams and might tip the scales in favour of Toto’s wife.
