Wolff, a 31-year-old Scot, has been a development driver for Williams since 2012. Meanwhile, de Silvestro, a 25-year-old from Thun, Switzerland, has raced in IndyCar since 2010 and recently signed with Sauber as an affiliated driver (whatever that means).

Both women have now tested an F1 car—Wolff at the 2013 young driver test at Silverstone and de Silvestro during a private test at Fiorano in April.

But which driver is actually closer to an F1 seat? Keep reading to find out.
