Williams race team manager leaves role
13 March 2014 – Williams race team manager Dickie Stanford has left his role ahead of the 2014 Formula 1 season.
Stanford, who joined the outfit as a race engineer back in 1985, first took on the team manager role in 1995, a position he would hold until the 2005 season before reducing his involvement with a factory-based position.
Stanford began a second stint as race team manager in 2010, but after another four campaigns, has decided to step back once more. He is currently in discussions with Williams team chiefs over a potential new role.
Ex-McLaren technical co-ordinator Peter Vale has taken on the position vacated by Stanford.
