 ROKiT Williams Racing adds to Technical Team

ROKiT Williams Racing is delighted to announce two new appointments that will strengthen its technical team. David Worner, who will be Chief Designer, and Jonathan Carter, who will be Deputy Chief Designer & Head of Design, both have many years of experience in the sport. They will take up these positions in the near future.

Worner is currently responsible for the Red Bull Racing/Scuderia Toro Rosso Synergies initiative and has been working in Formula 1 since 1997, when he joined Arrows as a Design Engineer. He gained experience in both stress and design engineering with Rolls Royce Aero, who he was with for 18 years from 1979. He moved to Jaguar Racing in 2003, transitioning to Red Bull Racing the following year as Senior Suspension Designer. He became Head of Suspension and Driver Controls for them in 2007 and was appointed Deputy Chief Designer in 2014.

Carter began his motorsport career in 1979 with Reynard Racing Cars before also working for Arrows as a Design Engineer for six years. He then moved to McLaren in 2002 and was responsible for their first composite main case, before leading a team responsible for advancing the team’s monocoque. He then went on to be Principal Engineer Car Integration before becoming Deputy Head of Vehicle Design in 2012. He is joining Williams from the Renault F1 Team where he has been Head of Composite Design since 2015.

Coincident with the above appointments, Adam Carter is appointed to the position of Chief Engineer and will be responsible for the integration and coordination of activities across the core engineering functions and delivery of vehicle programmes.

Deputy Team Principal of ROKiT Williams Racing, Claire Williams, commented: “Dave and Jonathan bring enormous experience, knowledge and skills to the Williams team, and we are delighted that they are joining us in the near future. They will strengthen our design capabilities and work closely with Adam Carter, our Chief Engineer, and the other senior members of the Engineering team on the design and development of the next generation of Williams F1 cars.”

Good news for 2021

100% Williams

28/01/2020 20:24
At long last, excellent news indeed.

All encouraging news.

Go Williams always!

I wonder if one will focus on this year's car development with a look at 2021, and another focuses solely on 2021 car design - would make sense really but this is Williams

This years car is pretty much done. Maybe they will get involved in season development but I would imagine their focus has to be learn Williams and truly get involved in the 2021 car.

But most importantly right now they need to provide direction and management of the design and production side of things.

David Worner, who will be Chief Designer, and Jonathan Carter, who will be Deputy Chief Designer & Head of Design,

AND THEN Adam carter will be Chief Engineer? Was he already with the team ?

29/01/2020 16:33
So who will be our TD? You know - the most important person before a big reg change.

29/01/2020 16:50
Probably Dave will take that position? He's been somehow the guy in place of Paddy in last 12 months.

looks like that position is not going to be filled until we find the right person and im guessing nobody would want the job just yet anyway considering how it backfired for Lowe

And if the team can function with the technical structure they have do they need a Technical Director.

Don't know the answer to that but if 2020 works out maybe the team will think that saving a few million by not paying a technical head could be a good thing.

Who says the position hasn't been filled already with the internal restructuring of employees?
That it hasn't been announced doesn't mean that it hasn't happened yet..
