Williams has a new chief technical officer who has joined in from Mercedes.
This is definitely an up for the team as they gear up for the new 2017 F1 season. Mercedes has been in the top of the game and it is hoped that Paddy Lowe will bring in new techniques and insight for the Williams team. He has recently assumed his role from his former position in a Mercedes, prior to that he had been technical director with McLaren. The senior role that he has been given at Williams should be a good career move for him and should prove beneficial for the team.
