Monza (AP) – Following her departure, Claire Williams expects Formula 1 to continue its strong efforts to promote diversity and equality. The performance concept must still hold true, said the previous co-team principal of the traditional England team Williams.
“But we need more women.” You strongly hope and believe “that it will continue” with the endeavors of the premier class of motorsport. “Formula 1 has changed in recent years, the world has changed,” said the 44-year-old daughter of legendary race team co-founder Frank Williams. Formula 1 has “become much more diverse”, but the work must continue.
Williams and her father are withdrawing from the racing series after the Italian Grand Prix. The former private team is now owned by an American investment company. There is no longer a woman among the team bosses of Formula 1.
