Williams' Wolff not ruling out managerial role

Apr.20 (GMM) Williams shareholder Christian 'Toto' Wolff has not ruled out taking a more hands-on role at the struggling British team.

The famous outfit's chairman Adam Parr said in China that after Williams' worst start to a new season since 1979, changes are definitely on the table.

Media reports have focused on the possibility Sam Michael could lose his job as technical director.

But a less-reported fact was that Austrian Wolff - whose 10 per cent stake could reportedly increase over time - made a rare visit to the F1 paddock in China last weekend.

Asked by laola1.at if he is pushing for an actual managerial role, he answered: "In Adam Parr we have a strong man who runs the show while I look in mainly from the outside."

Pressed further, he added: "I have put my foot in the door, and whether this is good or not, we will see."
