Susie Wolff: Lewis Hamilton, Formula 1 & the electronic revolution

Susie Wolff has memories of Lewis Hamilton that go back to a childhood spent racing karts against each other, an era of innocence in what she calls the purest form of racing where money and politics and gender played no part. “We’ve known each from the age of eight,” says Wolff. I was Susie the racing driver and suddenly when people asked me what I did I didn’t know what to reply. “It’s not just about female drivers, it’s the whole sport. Globally, with people competing in the sport, we are looking at under 2%, which is shocking. She had an offer to become a Formula E driver and said no chance. These races happen in city centres, so we bring it to the public. Susie Wolff speaks to BBC Scotland’s Tom English on going from an Oban girl to the Formula 1 paddock and beyond.
