Former technical Mercedes chief Paddy Lowe is set to join Williams as its new head of technical department while also becoming a new shareholder.

Lowe was officially placed on gardening leave by Mercedes last month and has been hotly tipped with a move to Williams after Pat Symonds departed the Grove-based squad.

According to reports on BBC Sport, Lowe's confirmation at Williams is being finalised and expected to be announced within the coming weeks once he secures a final severance deal with Mercedes.

Lowe is expected to take up a seat on Williams board while also director the team's technical department and the Williams Advanced Engineering business.
