Williams Test Driver, Susie Wolff, has announced that she will retire from motorsports at the end of the 2015 season. 

Wolff is known for being a prominent female driver within the F1 paddock. She has been in a development role with Williams F1 since 2012. In 2014, Susie became the first female, in two decades, to drive in a GP weekend. She drove in FP1 at the British and German Grands Prix. The last time a female competed in an F1 race was in 1992.

The British driver also raced in DTM from 2006 to 20012, where her highest race finish was 7th. Susie also competed in the Race of Champions last year. In the team cup, her and David Coulthard narrowly missed out to Team Nordic, and finished second.

The 32-year-old will race again this year at the Race of Champions, however this will be her last competitive race.
