BMW and Verstappen
We understand that the test team - which will be based in Munich - is already established and waiting to go into action. It remains to be seen who will run the operation but there are some technical changes going on at Williams at the moment. A recent visitor to the factory was McLaren engineer David Brown but it seems that he has decided to stay with the Woking team. There has also been talk of the team hiring a Ferrari engineer to take over the running of the race engineering. The team may however stay with Senior Operations Engineer James Robinson as he does not appear to have very many other options at the moment.
