In a bid to rescue the sport's plunging unpopularity, Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone has put forward the idea for an all-woman Formula One championship, but it has been shot down by the sport's best-known female racer.
Three teams unveiled their cars for the 2015 season race on Sunday. Williams and Mercedes unveiled their cars alongside their drivers in front of the press in Jerez. While, Red Bull gave the first look of their car and posted photos of a test drive by Daniel Ricciardo.
The Race Of Champions is to feature its first female competitor as Williams F1 development driver Susie Wolff has signed up for the 2014 edition at the Bushy Park Circuit in Barbados on December 13-14.
Susie Wolff will on Friday become the first woman in 22 years to drive a Formula One racing car in an official competitive session when she takes the wheel of a Williams in the opening practice for Sunday`s British Grand Prix.
Susie Wolff will become the first woman driver in 22 years to take part in a Formula One Grand Prix weekend this season after Williams said the Scot would be on track for them in two free practice sessions later this year.
Susie Wolff became the first female to take part in a meaningful run in an F1 car in more than 20 years, and was reportedly three seconds off the pace of Sebastian Vettel`s leading lap time for Red Bull.
