Sky Sports F1 pundit predicts major team principal change

Sky Sports F1 pundit David Croft has backed Williams team principal James Vowles to move to a top team in the next three years.

Croft: Vowles will become top F1 boss

"He is my team boss of the year, without a doubt," Croft told the Sky Sports F1 podcast.

"If you look at the lead time that he had before he took up the role, you're talking a matter of three months maximum. That is not a lot of time to put into operation any sort of plan where you hit the ground running and you get instant results."

"He works brilliantly with the sponsors," he continued. "He engages with the media, explains things not just about Williams, but about know what's going on on track.

"He engages with fans a lot. I love him on social media because he actually engages directly with the fans.

"People are inspired by him. I think he will go on to be one of the top team principals at a top team in three or four years' time."
