Changes at Williams

The BMW Williams team is not, as widely reported, in the process of "dumping" aerodynamicist Dr. John Davis. The reality is rather different as David resigned from the team in June last year and left the team completely after the necessary six months of notice. Davis has been working on a different project since the beginning of January although he is not currently letting on what that may be. Davis's major role at Williams was to oversee the construction of the team's second windtunnel. This was completed before he departed. Thus any stories suggesting that Davis is somehow to blame for problems with the new Williams should be disregarded.
