The restructure of Williams is continuing… Simon Roberts was the Team Principle of the Grove team however he is leaving the team and Jost Capito takes on the team principle duties.
Roberts joint the British team last June as Managing Director before taking over as Acting Team Principle when the Williams family sold the team last summer, the role was then made permanent before Christmas.
After only 100 days of being in charge, Capito has decided to complete an internal reorganisation to the reporting structure, which now means Robert’s role no longer exists in the team.
The trackside leadership duties which were held by Roberts is now being transferred to Technical Director, Francois-Xavier Demaison which puts him in charge of technical aspects across both factory and race track.
“Simon has played an integral role in managing the transition over the last 12 months and I would like to thank him for his great contribution during that time,” said Capito.
Roberts added: “It has been a pleasure to take on the role of Team Principal following the departure of the Williams family from the sport. However, with the transition well underway I am looking forward to a new challenge and wish everyone in the team well for the future.”

Seems Roberts has been made a scapegoat for a poor start to the season.
