Experience racing driver and She’s Mercedes ambassador Susie Wolff in a series of action-packed visual snippets – and find out more about her take on fitness, career and leading a physically demanding life.
The girl who loves speed.
In May 2016, former racing pro Susie Wolff joined She’s Mercedes as an official brand ambassador. When she was a mere 14 years old, the born Scot discovered her passion for speed, scouring the tarmac in fast-paced kart races. Later, she switched to formula racing and represented Mercedes-Benz in the DTM championships.
What would be a perfect start to your day, Susie Wolff?
A pro athlete on a mission.
In 2014, Susie Wolff was the first female racer after Giovanna Amati 1992 to participate in a Formula 1 weekend. But after three years as a Formula 1 test driver, Susie Wolff decided to end her pro motorsport career in 2015. Her other passions, however, continue to drive her: fitness, health and strong support for girls and women in motorsport.
What’s the best formula for clearing your head?
Dare to be different.
“I’m someone who needs challenges and clearly defined goals” Susie Wolff adds. After leaving the racing field, she switched to reporting on Formula 1 for British TV and also founded her own “Dare to be Different” initiative, designed to pave the way for more young female drivers in racing. As a mentor – and in her own private life – Susie Wolff emphasises that athletic excellence, high-tech and femininity can easily co-exist.
What’s the secret of a firm behind?
The key to success.
Since early childhood, Susie has followed her own path, making her a true inspiration on and off track. Her key to success? Feeling at home in your own body. “It’s not just your body that benefits from moving, sweating and feeling alive – your mind will also thank you. When you’re fit, you’re the best possible version of yourself.”
