Williams announces technical reshuffle

Williams announces a technical reshuffle ahead of 2013, including the creation of a new chief race engineer role
Williams has announced that Xevi Pujolar has been promoted into the position of chief race engineer as part of a technical reshuffle for the 2013 F1 season.

Pujolar has been promoted into the newly-created role following the departure of Mark Gillan – who had been chief operations engineer – towards the end of 2010.

Pujolar had previously held the role of race engineer for Pastor Maldonado for the past two seasons, having worked with Williams since 2003 – aside from a single year with Hispania in 2010.

Andrew Murdoch and Jonathan Eddolls will be race engineers for Maldonado and Valtteri Bottas during the season ahead.

“2013 will be an important year for Williams and I'm pleased to announce a refreshed technical team that has the talent to help move us further up the grid,” technical director Mike Coughlan said. “Xevi has proven himself to be a highly capable and experienced race engineer and his promotion to chief race engineer was a natural progression.

“Jonathan and Andrew have been key members of our race operations team for a number of years and this experience will prove valuable as they step up to Race Engineer. We made good progress in 2012 and will be looking to achieve further success in 2013.''
