Williams test driver Susie Wolff says she has no worries about earning a super licence when the regulations are tightened for 2016.

The FIA will introduce a points system for junior championships next season, meaning drivers will have to achieve certain placings in single seater categories if they are to join the Formula 1 grid.

But Wolff, who participated in the first practice session for the Spanish Grand Prix, is sure that her experience with Williams will leave her with no problems.

"I would hope so, and I can only tell you that I would do absolutely everything in my power that if I had the opportunity to race, I would get the licence," she said when asked if she'd receive a super licence.

"Because for me, that’s the only thing that’s going to stop me at this stage, when I’ve had time in an F1 car, I do a lot of simulator work, I do a solid job each time I’m in the car. That can’t be the reason that’s going to stop me from doing a race."

Wolff, who placed 14th in the first session, rued a mistake at Turn 3 which cost her lap time.

"[It's] frustrating a little bit that I messed up my quickest lap, I had a moment at Turn 3 and ultimately that cost me three tenths [of a second], which was a bit frustrating," she said.

"But ultimately I just had to focus on consistency then, because it was a nine lap run and there was some data to get for the team."
