Wolff now assisting Williams as Team Principal
24 July 2012 – Christian Wolff, more commonly known as ‘Toto’, has become the Executive Director of Williams Grand Prix Holdings. The Austrian steps up from his position of Non-Executive Director and will now assist Sir Frank Williams in his role of Team Principal. He is set to take the position whenever the 70-year-old decides to retire.
“Toto’s new role, working closely alongside myself, is about Williams looking forward and managing the successful running of the company,” Williams explains. “I am looking forward to our new working relationship and I have every belief that this partnership will help take Williams F1 from strength to strength.”
Wolff, now 40, began his career in motorsport as a driver, racing in Australian Formula Ford 20 years ago. He bought a share of the Williams F1 Team in November 2009.
“It’s a great honour for me to be assisting and supporting Sir Frank in his role as Team Principal at Williams,” says Wolff. “I have been a shareholder in the business since 2009 and I am really looking forward to being able to take my responsibilities to a new level. I know that together we will work tirelessly to make the group and team as successful as it can be.”
Wolff’s Scottish wife, Susie (née Stoddart) is development driver for the Grove squad.
