Re: F1 Silly Season officially begins...
Grojean stays with Lotus:
quote:Williams chief engineer leaves:
The confirmation came a day after Grosjean won the Race of Champions event in Bangkok, beating Red Bull's triple champion Sebastian Vettel and seven-times world champion Michael Schumacher along the way.
"Romain is a great talent and we are pleased that he is continuing with us for a second season," said team principal Eric Boullier in a statement.
Mark Gillan, one of the architects of Williams's 2012 revival, has left the team.
Gillan had joined Williams during its troubled 2011 Formula 1 campaign and was appointed as its chief operations engineer during its technical reshuffle.
The team confirmed to AUTOSPORT that Gillan had vacated his role to "spend more time with his family".
