Williams has announced a "strengthened" aerodynamics line-up as it gears up for the 2014 season including another defection from Lotus.

As part of the on-going work to improve key areas of the business, Williams has announced that Dave Wheater will join from Lotus to become Head of Aerodynamic Performance, reporting to existing Head of Aerodynamics Jason Somerville.

Also supporting Somerville will be Shaun Whitehead, previously of Red Bull Racing, who joins as Head of Aerodynamic Process.

"I'm very pleased to have secured the first class talents of Dave and Shaun, both of whom have enviable track records within F1,” said Somerville. “With the exciting challenges ahead for 2014, I am confident they will both add strength and experience to the team here at Grove."

"These two appointments show our commitment to both improving the process of aerodynamic development while focussing on the application of that development to true on-track performance," added Pat Symonds, Williams Chief Technical Officer. "Dave and Shaun bring a wealth of experience to our team and I welcome them both to Grove and fully expect them to make significant contributions to the renewed competitiveness that we are all working so hard to achieve. With Dave and Shaun on board, and under Jason's stewardship, we will be well positioned to make gains in this important area and support the continuing task of developing the FW36 in what promises to be an exciting year for the sport in 2014."
