Williams reveals new F1 board members after family exit

Following the complete sale of Williams to Dorilton Capital last month, it was announced on Thursday that the Williams family – including founder Sir Frank Williams and deputy team principals Claire Williams – will leave following this weekend’s Italian Grand Prix.

The team issued a further announcement on Thursday revealing its new three-man board of directors, with two of the members being high-ranking members of Dorilton Capital.

These are Matthew Savage, the chairman of Dorilton Capital, and Darren Fultz, who is the CEO of the investment fund. Both previously served at Rothschild, and played a role in founding Dorilton in 2009.

The pair will be joined on the board of directors by James Matthews, who is the CEO of Eden Rock Group.

Matthews is a former racing driver, winning the British Formula Renault championship and the Formula Renault Eurocup in 1994 before embarking on a career as a city trader.

Matthews is married to Pippa Middleton, the sister of the Duchess of Cambridge, who is married to Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge.

“The new Board recognises and appreciates the importance of retaining Williams’ heritage and culture and will continue to work with the senior management to leverage its capabilities to return it to racing competitively,” the statement from Williams concludes.
