Autosport (UK) - - AUTOSPORT AWARDS 2018 -

Im­pe­rial Col­lege Lon­don stu­dent Owen Heaney won the fourth Au­tosport Wil­liams En­gi­neer of the Fu­ture Award, earn­ing a two-year place­ment with the For­mula 1 team.

Heaney beat four other fi­nal­ists to the prize after in­ten­sive eval­u­a­tions at Wil­liams F1 in Oc­to­ber. The award was pre­sented by Wil­liams chief tech­ni­cal of­fi­cer – and chair­man of the judg­ing panel – Paddy Lowe.

“They got across all en­gi­neer­ing, all the dif­fer­ent ar­eas,” said Lowe of the struc­ture of the place­ment. “This award is about find­ing a leader of the fu­ture. They are not put straight into a spe­cial­ist area – it’s all about get­ting breadth of ex­pe­ri­ence in the first two years.”

“Wil­liams has such a great his­tory” OWEN HEANEY
