Williams Racing team manager Simon Roberts is leaving the team after just one year. This is no big surprise as his role has been significantly reduced with the recruitment of Jost Capito as CEO and FX Demaison as Technical Director. It was only seen as a matter of time before Roberts moved on, and there is probably no shortage of offers for the former McLaren man. Team Principal responsibility is taken over by Capito.
“Simon has played an integral role in managing the transition for the last 12 months and I would like to thank him for his great contribution during that time,” said Capito.
Roberts said he wishes the team good luck in the future and looks forward to moving on to a new challenge.
