M-Sport Ford announced Williams as its new technical director

M-Sport Ford confirmed today ahead of 2022 season that Chris Williams will be its new technical director and will lead the engineering team.

Williams has been a member of M-Sport for 25 years and the team decided to promote him as a technical director of its World Rally Team in WRC.

It must be mentioned that he was involved in the design of Fiesta ST Group N, Fiesta R2 1600, Fiesta R5 MKI, Fiesta WRC and the upcoming Puma Rally1 car.

"I’d like to extend a big thank you to Malcolm for his continued faith in me and for the many opportunities to lead projects over the years, from my first car project, the Fiesta ST Gp.N, all the way to the present day and the Puma Hybrid Rally1", Williams said.

"It’s a privilege to be given the opportunity to lead the technical team as a whole, particularly at a time that will see such significant change in the sport we love.

"We have a small team of innovative, committed and determined engineers and designers and I’m honoured to help, guide and support them to produce cars that compete and win at the highest levels of motorsport".

From his side, Malcolm Wilson said: "Chris has been responsible for many successful projects at M-Sport and without his commitment and determination we wouldn’t be in the position we are today.

"With his proven track record of competition cars it makes sense that he moves to the role of Technical Director and overseeing all engineering aspects of the business. 

"I look forward to not only seeing the Puma Rally1 Hybrid make its debut in Monte Carlo where I am sure it will perform as we expect, but also what other projects Chris and his team will develop to take M-Sport forward into the future".
