“Williams being a winner again” – CEO Josh Capito has underlined the ambitions for the legendary F1 team this decade under the ownership of Dorilton Capital.
Williams Racing CEO Josh Capito has heaped praise on Dorilton Capital, the new investors of the company. Capito is optimistic about the performance of the F1 team this season, which has finished rock bottom in the last three seasons.
“They are very good owners with the right mindset and resources and they are very supportive to the team. We are at the dawn of a new era at Williams. I would characterise 2021 as a transitional year for the team where our aim is to close the gap as much as possible.

Josh Capito determined to lead Williams F1 to the podium
Capito has reportedly done 45-minute meetings with each of the top 50 managers at their Grove base. He is also looking at some reshuffling based on team principal Simon Roberts’s leadership.
Apart from that, Capito also spoke about the FW43B, calling it “an exciting new identity for the team” which celebrates “the amazing history of Williams in F1”.
He also discussed the team’s target this season, and beyond, terming it “very clear”. This is significant especially under the new management after the Williams family departed last season.
The Williams F1 team would look to ‘overtake’ Haas and Alfa Romeo over the next two seasons, and then gradually make their way into the Top 5. Eventually, at the end of this decade, they are looking at getting back to where they believe they belong – to the top of the podium.
“Short term, battling on track and make the most of any opportunity. And long term, Williams being a winner again.”
