Newly appointed Williams Team Principal James Vowles says “Williams is an entirely independent organisation”, but that doesn’t mean they “won’t have some form of collaboration” with Mercedes.

After being appointed as the team principal of Williams, long-time Mercedes strategy boss James Vowles answered questions from those who fear that Mercedes will now have too much influence over Williams.

“It doesn’t mean that [Mercedes and Williams] won’t have some form of collaboration, there was collaboration before I joined, but I have to do what is best for Williams.

“The second you put a crisp Williams shirt on, that’s where you are, that’s where your loyalty is, and that’s where my success, and the team’s success, will come from.

“So, there’s no ‘mini Mercedes’, no ‘B-team’ or any of that notion, it’s about me standing on my own two legs and making a success of the organisation that I’m in,” the Briton concluded.
