The news comes as a surprise: Williams has found a successor to the retired team boss Jost Capito. In the future, former Mercedes chief strategist James Vowles will take over the fortunes of the Grove-based Formula 1 team.

“I can’t wait to start at Williams,” says the 43-year-old. “It’s an honor to join a team with such an incredibly rich heritage. The team is an icon of our sport, which I respect very much and I’m really looking forward to the challenge.”

Vowles will take up his post on February 20th, just in time for the first race of the season in Bahrain.

The Briton is best known to Formula 1 fans from his time at Mercedes, where he held the role of chief strategist for four years. However, he joined the Brackley team back when the racing team was still called BAR, which later became Honda, Brawn and finally Mercedes.

Williams will compete in 2023 with Alexander Albon and rookie Logan Sargeant.
