Williams’ minor shareholder Christian ‘Toto’ Wolff has not ruled becoming more hands-on in the struggling Williams team’s day-to-day running, with the outfit seeing its worst-ever start to a championship season since 1979.
Several key figures within the team – including Williams’ CEO Adam Parr and the team’s technical director Sam Michael – have hinted at a major restructuring in the team, with the strongest speculation indicating that Michael could be dumped from his role.
Wolff – who owns a 10% stake in the team – made a rare visit to the Chinese Grand Prix paddock last weekend, prompting suggestions that he is not happy with the status quo at the Grove squad.
The Austrian was asked by Laola1 if he was interested in pursuing a more involved position at the team, and his response was certainly interesting.
“In Adam Parr we have a strong man who runs the show while I look in mainly from the outside,” he is quoted as saying.
“I have put my foot in the door, and whether this is good or not, we will see,” he added.
