Brexit con­cern

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Brexit will hurt the Williams F1 team as the drop in the value of the pound will mean it has to pay more for its Mercedes en­gines. The en­gines are paid in eu­ros and moves to re­duce the costs of en­gine sup­ply will be negated. “There have been short-term im­pacts around costs,” said deputy team prin­ci­pal Claire Williams. “We un­for­tu­nately pay for our en­gine in eu­ros. All the hard work we have done to bring the costs down by four mil­lion [eu­ros] for 2018 have been coun­ter­bal­anced.”
