Head of Aerodynamics Williams leaves

Formula 1 team Williams has replaced head of Aerodynamics Dirk de Beer on Wednesday. De Beer leaves after a disappointing start of the F1 2018 Championship earning only 4 points for the team in six races.

Dave Wheater will be stepping up to take on the role as Head of Aerodynamics. Williams added "The team would like to thank Dirk for his hard work over the past year and wish him the best for the future."

De Beer had been working with Sauber, Renault and had been head of Aerodynamics with Ferrari where he left last year before working with Williams. De Beers departure followed that of chief designer Ed Wood, who left earlier in May due to personal matters.

Williams is the only team other than Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull who have had a driver on the podium in the 2017 season with Stroll finishing third in Azerbaijan but have not won a race since 2012.
