Spar with Ecclestone forced Parr to quit

Adam Parr had resigned from his position as chairman of Williams not just because he wanted to “pursue a better balance in his life” but because he was cornered by Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone.

In his recently released graphic novel ‘The Art of War’, the 47-year-old indicated that Ecclestone was not in the best of terms with the Briton, tipped to be the successor of Frank Williams as team principal of the Grove-based outfit.

Parr quit on 26 March, a day following the second round of the championship; the Malaysian Grand Prix, over a disagreement surrounding the terms of the new commercial agreement that would come into play from 2013 onwards.

"I had resigned that week, rightly or wrongly believing that Ecclestone had told my board that no Concorde offer would be forthcoming while I was running Williams," Parr mentioned. "Under the circumstances, I chose to stand down so that the team could make the best deal possible with him. The offer arrived the day after my resignation had been announced."
