LONDON, England - Susie Wolff has slammed suggestions an all-female version of Formula 1 should be launched.

Alarmed by the current state of the sport he built, F1 chief executive Ecclestone has been full of ideas in Sepang, such as allocating points for qualifying and mixing up the grids.


According to Britain's Mirror newspaper, Ecclestone's next idea is a separate F1 series only for women but Susie Wolff, the female test driver for Williams, blasted: "It's most definitely not the right way forward.

"First of all, I don't know where you'd find a full grid of female drivers who are good enough. Secondly, I have raced my whole career in motor sport as a normal competitor.  Why would I ever look for a race where I was only competing against women?

"I can hand on heart say it would not interest me at all to win such a race.  I would rather not be in the race because what am I winning?  A race where they've just looked for any girl to make a grid up."
