LONDON (AP) - Susie Wolff will gain further experience in Williams' Formula One car this week when she takes part in testing at Silverstone.

The Scot joined Williams as a development driver in April 2012, becoming the fourth woman in a decade to drive an F1 car.

In-season testing has been allowed at Silverstone from Wednesday to Friday to allay safety fears after concerns about burst tires at the British Grand Prix earlier this month.

Wolff says ``it's going to be a big challenge but the most important thing is to do a solid and consistent job and ... prove I am at the level to compete on a day such as this.''

Wolff's husband, Toto, was an executive and shareholder with Williams but has since left for Mercedes.
