Williams have a new head of aerodynamics in the form of Dirk de Beer as the technical personnel for teams continue to move around.

De Beer has previously worked with Sauber and Renault, and was the chief aerodynamicist at Ferrari before departing at the end of last season.

He said: “I am extremely pleased to be joining Williams. The team has an incredible heritage in Formula One, and I’m proud to now be a part of that. I’m looking forward to working with Dave Wheater and the Williams aero team to help continue driving forward the development of the car throughout the season and beyond. I would like to thank Williams for giving me this opportunity.”

Deputy Team Principal, Claire Williams, added: “We’re delighted to have someone with Dirk’s vast experience joining us. Having spent several years as a Head of Aerodynamics in Formula One, his knowledge and technical expertise will undoubtedly be a great asset to the team in our continued push to restore Williams to the front of the grid.”
