Williams has recruited two experienced Formula 1 personnel to senior technical positions, as it bids to arrest its decline in the championship.
Williams slumped to last in the 2018 standings and replicated that position in 2019, scoring just one point all year, and failed to make it out of Q1.
On Tuesday Williams revealed that David Worner will take up the role of Chief Designer while Jonathan Carter will act as Deputy Chief Designer and Head of Design.
Williams confirmed that the pair will start their new positions “in the near future.”
Worner currently oversees the synergies initiative between Red Bull and Alpha Tauri, and has worked in Formula 1 since 1997, initially at Arrows, before moving to Jaguar, which became Red Bull.
Carter has worked with Reynard and McLaren, and has been with Renault as Head of Composite Design since 2015.
In a further move Williams has appointed Adam Carter to the position of Chief Engineer.
Deputy Team Principal 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.”
