Wolff to assist team boss Frank Williams 25 July, 2012 Jul.24 (GMM) Williams has finally confirmed reports Toto Wolff is ramping up his role with the Grove based Formula One team. Even before chairman Adam Parr left the team recently, F1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone said he thinks “people like Toto Wolff should get more control” at Williams. Wolff, a young Austrian businessman and former racer, bought a stake in the famous British team in 2009. He is also team test driver Susie Wolff’s manager, and Friday driver Valtteri Bottas’ manager. But until now, he has had a non-executive role, despite his increasingly obvious presence at grands prix. Williams announced on Tuesday that he has become an executive director. “In his new role Toto will assist and support Sir Frank Williams in his continuing position as team principal,” a media statement said.
