30 June 2017

McLaren’s former team manager, Dave Redding will join Williams Martini Racing in the same role on 17 July, while Williams’ sporting manager, Steve Nielsen leaves.

Redding will join the team after the British Grand Prix and will be responsible for the overall management of the operational and sporting aspects of the Williams race team.

With more than 30 years of experience in Formula One, Redding was most recently at McLaren where he held the position of team manager. After originally joining McLaren in 2001 as a systems engineer, Redding worked in a number of engineering and operational roles before moving on to become team manager in 2009. His previous roles over the course of his Formula One career include positions at Jaguar, Stewart and Benetton.

Separately, Williams’ sporting manager, Steve Nielsen, will leave the company on 31 July.

Paddy Lowe, chief technical officer at Williams, added; “Firstly, I must thank Steve for his hard work and dedication since joining Williams in 2014. He has done a brilliant job in restructuring the race team and particularly in driving the impressive pit stop performances we have shown in the last 18 months.

“I am also delighted to welcome Dave to the Williams team. Dave brings an exceptional level of Formula One racing knowledge and experience. Since joining, I have seen first-hand the talented individuals we have in the race team at Williams. I’m sure Dave will fit in well and be able to provide the operational and sporting leadership necessary to not only maintain our current high standards, but to build even further on all aspects of our race team performance in the future.”

Speaking about his appointment, Redding said; “Having been involved in motorsport for 30 years, I know that Williams is a great racing team, and one that I am extremely excited and privileged to be joining. I already know and respect many of the team members, and I can’t wait to start work at Grove and to be an integral part of an exciting future for the team.”
