Parr, Head & Williams This change sees the 68-year-old handing the general running of the team over to his long-time associate, although he was quick to emphasise that this move does not mean he is about to retire anytime soon.

“I want to emphasise, very strongly, that this is absolutely not my notice of impending retirement,” he said. “I love Formula 1, still have a strong involvement in the company and go to work every day…when I’ll be retiring hasn’t crossed my mind yet.”

Parr’s former position as the team’s Chief Executive Officer will be assumed by Alex Burns, the team’s former Chief Operator Officer.
