Head Reckons Williams Have Changed

Wednesday April 18th, 2001

Williams technical director Patrick Head has admitted a new age has arrived at the team and he has taken a back seat as the team looks to aim towards a championship challenge.

Head has relinquished control of the design side to a team below him, and with Sam Michael filling the operations engineer role from the start of this year, he believes they are capable of leading Williams onto the next level.

"Williams is slightly different from before," said Head. "The period of the nineties was very much driven by Adrian (Newey) on the design side and me on the design as well as the hardware and also I looked after reliability and operations of the car.

"I was heavily on line involved in the 1990s, but now I am less involved. We have a chief designer Gavin Fisher and a chief aerodynamicist Geoff Willis and a chief operations engineer in Sam Michael.

"Those guys in truth can pretty much do it on their own, although I suspect there is a bit of experience and sometimes a few ideas I can add to the party."
