Claire Williams OBE is the former Deputy Team Principal of the Williams Formula 1 racing team, in which role she was one of only two women to lead a Formula 1 team in the modern era. Under her leadership, Williams finished 3rd in the World Championship for Constructors in 2014 and 2015, the team's best performance since 2003.
Claire grew up around Formula 1 since her late father, Sir Frank Williams, was the founder of the Williams Grand Prix Engineering F1 team, winning nine Constructors’ Championships and seven Drivers’ Championships.
Claire has been among the most prominent and successful women in recent Formula 1 history. During her 8-year tenure, Claire was a keen advocate for greater diversity and inclusion within her own team and across the sport as a whole. She acted as the catalyst to give Susie Wolff the chance to become the first female racing driver to participate in a Formula One race weekend since 1992.
