Williams has given details of changes to its engineering management as the team rebuilds for the new season. Rather handily, it has given a job description for the key players, who will work under chief technical officer Pat Symonds.

As revealed by FOXSports.com on Nov. 29, former McLaren and Force India man Jakob Andreasen has joined as Head of Engineering Operations. The team says his “focus will be on better integrating trackside operations with the continued design and development of the Williams-Mercedes FW36 at the factory.”

John Button, the father of Jenson and formerly a top rallycross driver in his own right, has passed away after a suspected heart attack at his home in France. He had celebrated his 70th birthday in Hungary last year.

A wonderful, outgoing character, it goes without saying that he was Jenson’s number one supporter throughout the latter’s career. John took Jenson through the karting ranks and then attended all but one of his F1 starts, only missing out through illness. He had hundreds of friends up and down the paddock, and not just at McLaren or Jenson’s previous teams.
