Any Formula 1 fan knows that, if there is one power couple in this sport that rules the paddocks with their presence, it is definitely Mercedes Boss Toto Wolff and his wife Susie Wolff. The two have given a new face to racing with their innovations, and have excelled in leading their teams to the top of the standings.

But other than being Toto Wolff’s wife, Susie has a history in racing, and she has also competed with Lewis Hamilton at one stage. To know more about the life of the spouse of one of F1’s most powerful man, we need to delve into Susie Wolff’s personal life. She was born in Oban, Scotland, on the 6th of December, 1982, and her nationality is British. Her father John Stoddart used to race bikes during his time and he owned a motorcycle dealership in Susie’s birthplace. It might be presumed that her father was an inspiration to Susie Wolff and he drove her to become involved in motorsports later in her life.

Susie Wolff has had a long career in racing as she started karting at 8 and by the time she was 18, she had her name in the World Championship rankings. In 1996, she was crowned the British Woman Kart Racing Driver of the year. For seven years, Wolff had raced in the German Touring Car Championship under the wing of Mercedes Benz, and after 2015, she stopped competitive racing altogether. In 2018, she took up the role of the Team Principal for Venturi Racing in Formula E.
