Formula 1's Latest Rumours and Talk: Susie Wolff, Paul Di Resta and More

Susie Wolff has led the way in terms of increasing the participation of women in Formula One.

The Scot became the first female driver in over two decades to take to the track on a race weekend last month and believes more will arrive on the scene in the near future, with women currently holding senior positions at Williams and Sauber.

While Wolff is leading the way, her compatriot, Paul Di Resta, has lost his way as far as his Formula One career is concerned.

Di Resta was banished to the DTM, the German touring car series, for this season after parting company with Force India at the end of 2013.

However, the 28-year-old, who was overlooked for seats with leading teams over the course of his three seasons in F1, remains confident that he will return to the grid.

Meanwhile, Paddy Lowe, Mercedes' technical executive director, has revealed his surprise that the team's open-minded approach to allowing Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton to fight equally for the championship was questioned.

The Silver Arrows' philosophy has seen the toys fly out of the pram on a number of occasions this season, but there were no such problems at Sauber between 2011 and 2012.

Sergio Perez and Kamui Kobayashi, team-mates at the Swiss team at the time, enjoyed a strong working relationship, with the former thanking the Japanese for his effect on the Mexican's career.

Closing this week's roundup is Toro Rosso, who have been left frustrated by their fast but flawed 2014 car.
