Williams have confirmed that co-founder Sir Patrick Head has returned to the team in a consultancy role in a bid to try to inspire a turnaround in their fortunes. Head was technical director at Williams for 27 years from the team's 1977 inception, overseeing the creation of cars that secured several titles.
Nine constructors' championships and seven drivers' titles were secured by Head-designed cars in Williams' successful run in the 1980s and 1990s.
Williams modern fortunes are in stark contrast to those glory days, and the team endured arguably their worst campaign in F1 last year as they finished bottom of the constructors' standings.
