Williams household information got here as a “shock” to F1 race workforce

The announcement that Frank and Claire Williams will finish their involvement with F1 after this weekend’s race at Monza adopted the sale of the squad to funding agency Dorilton Capital final month.

In the 2 weeks because the sale was revealed, the Williams race workforce has travelled to Belgium and Italy as a part of F1’s newest 2020 triple header, with drivers George Russell and Nicolas Latifi discovering that the Williams household can be departing shortly earlier than it was introduced.

The workforce’s head of car efficiency, Dave Robson, defined the way it had been acquired by the squad.

“So that news at the beginning of this weekend was a bit of a surprise to us,” he stated.

“And obviously it’s a real shame that it marks the end of an era with the Williams family’s involvement in the team.

“But beyond that, it hasn’t changed what we’ve been doing this weekend. As last weekend, Claire is still here and in charge and the exact ramifications of it going forwards I haven’t really given too much thought to yet.

“It’s a big shock to everyone. And quite how the future will pan out is still a little bit of an unknown, but hopefully it’ll be a good and exciting future.

“We’ll find out more in the coming weeks, but at the moment we’re very much focused on day to day business at the track.”

When requested by if Williams had any plan to nominate an interim workforce boss for at the very least subsequent weekend’s race at Mugello, Robson defined that he didn’t anticipate such a growth at this stage.

“Claire’s obviously normally at the track, but when she’s here she’s a little bit hands off and quite happy to let those of us who run the engineering side of things keep the show on the road at the races,” he stated.

“I think, as far as I’m aware, that will be same in Mugello – obviously Claire won’t be there, but there’s often races that she’s not at and we all carry on running the engineering side of things as we normally do.

“And then we’ve got a break before we get to Russia and we’ll see how it pans out.”
