Too dangerous? And he's not the only one to think that way...

Well this is just a PR masterclass for the parties involved! I really hope this is just an unfortunately worded way of saying 'I am contractually obliged to drive Mercs, but there is no Le Mans eligible Merc.' Anything otherwise and I will have to hold a grudge against Toto and any programme he is ever affiliated with.
I guess it is a good thing my interest in F1 decreases exponentially on an annual basis for several years now.

She said this is in a German interview some months ago, Wolff thinks LMP1s are "insane" and "dangerous" and forbids her to drive such a car.

Since she's pretty much racing on his dime she has to listen to him as well.

it happens with guys too, you just don't hear about it because nobody thinks to highlight it. i swear it was one of the schumachers whose missus declared at least one kind of motorsport as verboten. likewise, rubens barrichello's wife banned him from doing indy till he talked her round.

Her currfew is 8pm so she can make him dinner, so Le Mans would have never worked anyway.

I believe we have a germanic translation issue here which makes it sound harsh.

Judging by her recent career, her husband has forbidden her from racing.

Where does it say it was a translation? Susie is Scottish so if she spoke with Autosport it would have been in English.

My bad, I didn't know. In that case, I doubt either one of them has a clue what the other is saying.

Susie just appeared on breakfast TV here to announce her retirement from the sport-seems to have accepted that no one is going to give her a race-a sad day I think

She made the mistake on chasing her F1 pipe dream instead of looking what's possible for her.

She didn't set the world on fire in DTM but I think she could have been a capable driver in Mercedes GT3' program but she seemed to want what she can't have.

Shame.

At age 32 stepping down to GP2 not very likely.

Hoping Beitske Visser will move up to GP2.
