The new boss of the Williams team, who sees that “the team has a lot of potential”, is preparing to take the reins of the structure as early as February 20, but according to the consultant of Red Bull, Helmut Marko, the departure of James Vowles. from Mercedes, where he was responsible for the strategy, will have caused tension in Brackley, not least because he cannot move into his new home alone.
In an interview with Sport1.de, Helmut Marko said he has information that Vowles does not want to make Williams a type of Mercedes B team. something that he himself explained after the announcement. According to Marko, “Vowles went of his own accord and – so they say – he even takes good engineers with him. My sources tell me that is why the environment at Mercedes is worried.” Without Vowles at Mercedes, the Red Bull consultant continues to believe that ” Mercedes will be our biggest rival when it comes to defending our title”, to emphasize what I said before.
After the confirmation of the departure of James Vowles from Mercedes to take over the duties that belonged to Jost Capito at Williams, Toto Wolff said that he felt “very comfortable in the current structure” and. that the loss of the head of strategy was not a weakness for the team.
