MIKE O’DRISCOLL

Group chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer, Wil­liams F1 Team

Auto Express - - The Brit List 2018 -

THE 2018 For­mula One sea­son is prov­ing pretty hor­ren­dous for Wil­liams, with its two driv­ers strug­gling at the back of the field. But Mike O’driscoll’s brief ex­tends be­yond the F1 cir­cus to en­com­pass the firm’s engi­neer­ing ef­forts. Wil­liams is at the head of the grid here; it was de­vel­op­ing al­ter­na­tive pow­er­trains long be­fore it was trendy, and it’s pay­ing off. Wil­liams is work­ing with Air­bus on its high­alti­tude drones, and will sup­ply bat­ter­ies when World Ral­ly­cross switches to EVS in 2020.
