Williams signs simulator driver Paffett
Williams has signed up former long-time McLaren test driver Gary Paffett.
The 34-year-old Briton, who races in the German touring car series DTM, was a McLaren tester for a decade until the team's Mercedes era ended.
But Paffett is now returning to duty in F1 with a role as Williams' "simulator driver".
"We're delighted to have someone with Gary's experience join us at Williams," said Williams deputy chief Claire Williams.
