Bahrain Grand Prix: New Williams team boss James Vowles says task tougher than expected

New Williams Formula 1 boss James Vowles says the task of leading the team back to the front is even tougher than he expected it to be. Two weeks into his new role, Vowles said the job in front of him was “about what I expected, but maybe a soupçon of being slightly worse”. Vowles said: “Any organisation – irrespective of whether it is a Formula 1 team or otherwise – cannot be a high-performing outfit, if you a) take money away from it, and b) basically have such disruption across a number of years that you end up in a poor situation. He also said the team “lacking key technical personnel” after losing their technical director and head of aerodynamics had created difficulties. “The team’s definitely under strain at the moment to ensure that we’re filling those voids as best we can,” Vowles said. Vowles said: “I think the belief on that is changed as a result of everyone seeing the results that have been achieved over the last few years.
