Simon Roberts joined Williams from McLaren in June last year, originally in the role of the managing director, and was also made the team principal after the Williams family sold the team and left the sport last September.
Although, Jost Capito, Williams’ CEO, will assume the responsibilities held by Roberts while Francois-Xavier Demaison, who joined as technical director in March, will now stay in charge of trackside and engineering.
However, “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 said: “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.”
