Williams has announced the signing of two new designers to strengthen and bolster its technical team ahead of the new Formula 1 season.

David Worner will join Williams as its new chief designer, while Jonathan Carter is set to take up the role of deputy chief designer and head of design, arriving from Red Bull and Renault respectively.

Worner has over 20 years' experience in F1, most recently overseeing the synergies between Red Bull and its sister team, Toro Rosso. Worner previously served as Red Bull's deputy chief designer.

Carter steps away from Renault after working as its head of composite design since 2015. He previously worked with Arrows and McLaren.

The arrival of Worner and Carter acts as a continuation of the restructuring of the technical department that has taken place at Williams over the past 12 months since the departure of former technical chief Paddy Lowe.

As part of the announcement, Williams confirmed that Adam Carter has become the team's chief engineer, in which role he "will be responsible for the integration and coordination of activities across the core engineering functions and delivery of vehicle programmes".

Deputy Williams team principal Claire Williams said: "Dave and Jonathan bring enormous experience, knowledge and skills to the Williams team, and we are delighted that they are joining us in the near future.

"They will strengthen our design capabilities and work closely with Adam Carter, our Chief Engineer, and the other senior members of the Engineering team on the design and development of the next generation of Williams F1 cars.”
