New Williams CEO Vowles prioritizes appointment of Technical Director for team’s success
Williams’ new CEO, Jost Capito’s successor, Simon Vowles, has confirmed that his number one priority is to appoint a new Technical Director for the team. Vowles, who officially started with the team on February 20, made the announcement during last week’s pre-season test in Bahrain, where he fielded questions about the team’s future.
The decision comes after Williams parted ways with their previous Technical Director, FX Demaison, as part of the team’s reshuffle over the winter. Vowles believes that Williams currently lacks the proper technical structures and organization needed to move forward, and that appointing a new Technical Director is crucial.
