Toto Wolff becomes a Williams executive director
Williams has confirmed that shareholder Toto Wolff has become an executive director of Williams Grand Prix Holdings PLC with immediate effect.

Wolff has been a minority shareholder for a number of years and was previously a non-executive director of the company.

In his new role, Wolff will work closely with Sir Frank Williams in the future direction of the company.

“It's a great honour for me to be assisting and supporting Sir Frank in his role as Team Principal at Williams,” Wolff said. “I have been a shareholder in the business since 2009 and I am really looking forward to being able to take my responsibilities to a new level. I know that together we will work tirelessly to make the Group and team as successful as it can be.”

Williams himself also welcomed the news that Wolff is to expand his involvement with the team.

“Toto's new role, working closely alongside myself, is about Williams looking forward and managing the successful running of the company,” he said. “I am looking forward to our new working relationship and I have every belief that this partnership will help take Williams F1 from strength to strength.”

@Taz then just fire Bruno and give wonder buy Bottas all that he needs to break all F1 records simple! What they are doing proved to be counterproductive for Bruno and for the team! I'm sure Sauber gave it 100% to Kimi just like they gave to Felipe. My point Bottas is unproved success Kimi like Felipe won everything so fast they made their point. Also Bottas hasn't raced against the best competition out there he's trying to leapfrog more talented drivers than him very different from Kimi's case!

Good luck to him I hope he cancels Bottas' FP1 and send the boy to GP2 to see IF he is F1 material or not! Clearly the decision a third driver without even GP2 experience would be taking crucial FP1 from their race driver who is btw new to the team would end up going to be a big mistake. What did they expect to happen? Williams has a great history in F1 but unfortunately they've been screwing things up for a long time now. The points Senna will miss this season for not having Friday track time is hundreds times more money than what Bottas family paid for FP1! Shareholders should worry as well decisions were being made against the shareholders interests I hope the team can be functional in closed doors once again now.
