Williams’ chief operations engineer Mark Gillan has left the British team after just one season with a spokesperson confirming that he wanted to “spend more time with his family”, according to a report by Reuters.

In addition, Peter Windsor, a journalist and former manager at Williams, mentioned on his Twitter page that Bruno Senna’s 2012 race engineer Tom McCullough will be joining Sauber next year and strategist Mark Barnett is to move to Force India in 2013.

This season, Williams bettered its position in the constructors’ championship by one position over last year in eighth place, scoring 76 points against the five scored in the 2011 campaign.

The Grove-based outfit also registered its first win since 2004 earlier in May when Pastor Maldonado emerged victorious at the Spanish Grand Prix.

Maldonado has been retained by Williams for 2013 and will partner rookie Valtteri Bottas, who has been the team’s test and reserve driver for the last few years.
