Claire Williams

Claire Williams OBE is the former Deputy Team Principal of the Williams Formula 1 racing team. 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, taking the team to successive third places in the Constructors’ Championships in just her second and third years in charge.

During her tenure, Claire was a keen advocate for greater diversity and inclusion within her own team and across the sport as a whole. Since the successful sale of the Williams F1 team in 2020 Claire has provided consultancy services to brands entering Formula 1 and shares her experiences of running a contemporary F1 team with corporate clients.

Claire was appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in the Queen’s 2016 Birthday Honours List in recognition of her services to Formula One.
