Wurz returns to Williams as ‘driver mentor’

(GMM) Former Williams driver Alex Wurz has returned to the famous British team as a “driver mentor”.

Austrian Wurz, 38, was Oxfordshire based Williams’ Friday driver in 2006, and Nico Rosberg’s teammate the following year, before he left F1 with 69 grands prix under his belt.

Now a Le Mans driver, he will return to the F1 paddock in 2012 to mentor Bruno Senna, Pastor Maldonado and test driver Valtteri Bottas.

“Alex will start his duties at this week’s Barcelona test before accompanying the team to races this season,” said Williams in a media statement.

Wurz made his grand prix debut in 1997, and was also highly regarded as a test driver for McLaren and Honda.

On his new role, he said: “This is a great initiative by Williams and highlights just how hard the team is pushing to optimise its performance.”
