Paddy Lowe leaves Williams F1 after 2 years

25 June 2019

Paddy Lowe, Williams F1’s Chief Technical Officer, will be leaving Williams indefinitely and will step down from the board of directors with immediate effect. 

Lowe has been on an extended leave of absence since 5 March due to ‘personal reasons’. However, speculation about his future mounted earlier this year following the car’s poor performance, as well as production delays which meant Williams missed the first two-and-a-half-days of pre-season testing in Barcelona.  

Paddy Lowe said: “After a period of careful reflection I have reached the decision that I will not return to work at Williams.

“I wish all my previous colleagues the very best to meet the challenges ahead, which I am sure they will do.  I would especially like to thank the Williams fans who are so supportive.”

Claire Williams said: “We understand and respect the decision Paddy has reached and wish him well for the future“.

Lowe, who was Mercedes’ former Executive Technical Director, became Williams’ Chief Technical Officer and a shareholder at the Williams Group in March 2017.
