Great Britain

Teams:

Williams (1977-2011)

Worked as an engine tuner before joining Williams, where he still remains, some 40 years on, although he was no longer involved in F1 until a return in 2019 as a consultant to try and get his former team from languishing at the back of the grid. In more recent years, he's been less involved in the racing but remains with the team as a board member and shareholder and is also part of the FIA committee involved with running and organising their endurance series. In his current role at Williams, he is involved in the hybrid and commercial side of the company, which deals, with amongst other things, buses and railways. In 2015, Head was knighted for his services to motorsport.
