Sam Michael, Williams F1 Technical Director- Falling on your sword

With the initial failures of the Williams FW33, Sam Michael took the brunt of the blame for the reason that the radical designs on the car were unsuccessful. Michael turned in his resignation for the end of the 2011 year.

He is one of the youngest technical directors in the sport, however I don’t think that has anything to do with Williams’ current trouble. I wanted to feature a video about him and his role at Williams, so people understand the challenges that a technical director of a racing team has to manage.

Michael may have been thrown under the bus by Williams F1, but that does not mean that he is not a total capable engineer.
