Patrick Head, one of Formula 1’s most influential figures, has ended his illustrious career. The Williams icon, who has been involved in the sport for more than 30 years, will relinquish his Board of Directors role with immediate effect.
Having co-founded Williams back in 1977, Head has fronted the team’s engineering department ever since, picking up a total of nine Constructors’ and seven Drivers’ titles, plus 113 Grands Prix victories. However, despite his withdrawal from F1 and his successful partnership with Sir Frank Williams, the 65-year-old will continue his work with Williams Hybrid Power Limited, a subsidiary of the Grove-based outfit.
"Patrick and I have been in partnership for 34 years," explained Williams. "During that time, he has been the leader of the technical team that has won the majority of our race wins and championships. This is a remarkable legacy and one which will be treasured and definitely not forgotten.
"Patrick is a very straightforward, hard working and truly gifted engineer who comfortably operates at a world class level. I will miss him very much, as I am sure his colleagues will, and he will always be welcome at Grove.
"Indeed, Patrick will still be seen around the factory as he continues to be involved in the development of our hybrid power activities."
