Stanford given new Williams role

Williams veteran Dickie Stanford has been appointed as the General Manager of a new division - Williams Heritage - at the Grove outfit.

Stanford resigned from his position as race team manager earlier this year, but Williams insisted that they are planning on keeping the 58-year-old on in some capacity.

On Tuesday, it was announced that Stanford will be in charge of a new division that will be responsible for overseeing and maintaining Williams' historic Formula One cars.

"A team of our longevity has many historic assets that need to be cherished and preserved for future generations to enjoy," Sir Frank Williams said.

"Dickie combines strong mechanical knowledge of our cars from his time as a mechanic, with first class operational and logistical skills honed as race team manager. He is therefore perfectly placed to take on the day-to-day operational running of our historic car programme and provide support to Jonathan [Williams] in ensuring that Williams' Heritage programme goes from strength to strength. I would personally like to add my thanks to him for his services to the team during his time as Race Team Manager."

Stanford added that the opportunity was one he simply couldn't turn down.

"I have a lot of passion for the company and its heritage and the opportunity to take charge of our historic car programme is too good to turn down," he added.

"With the formation of Williams Heritage as a distinct division within Williams, we will be well placed to ensure that our legendary cars continue to be well looked after and can be showcased to Formula One fans for many years to come."
