SCOTS-BORN Formula One development driver Susie Wolff looks relaxed as she arrives in the Melbourne paddock for tomorrow's Australian Grand Prix.

Ms Wolff's Williams-Martini team's regular drivers Felipe Massa and Valterri Bottas are strongly tipped for success in the season opener.

Ms Wolff, 31, from Oban, Argyll, will become the first female to take part in a F1 race weekend in 22 years when she gets behind the wheel at two free practice sessions later this season. Her husband, Toto Wolff, is the joint team chief of Lewis Hamilton's rival Mercedes team.
