I was completely shocked to see a statement of social media on Friday asking if Claire Williams is the right person to lead the Williams team.

Firstly, that in my opinion is a stupid question to ask because of course she is. The Grove based outfit struggled last season and with Martini no longer sponsoring the team questions have been asked about the outfit.

Claire has been with the team for many years and made her way up the ranks and helped guide the team to third place in the championship no so long ago so of course she is the right person to lead the team.

Williams are one of the most successful teams in Formula One and they are resilient with extremely talented men and women in the team they will be back stronger in 2019.

Paddy Lowe came in last year as chief technical officer and like with anything it takes time for changes to be implemented.

Robert Kubica makes his full time return to Formula One with Williams this year and despite not competing in F1 for a number of years.

The team also have Formula One rookie George Russell who will make his race debut in Australia.

The Williams team will bounce back this season and Claire is the perfect person to guide the team.
