Great Ormond Street Hospital provides world-class specialist paediatric care, research, training and education, and a continued commitment to sick children. THE impending departure of Williams to rival engine supplier Renault in January will have no impact on the future of Cosworth in Formula One, so insists their general manager, Mark Gallagher. Williams announced prior to the British Grand Prix that they would ditch Cosworth power for the second time in six years, as they rekindle the successful partnership that they enjoyed with Renault in the 1990s. Speaking at Silverstone, Gallagher (right) said Cosworth’s position in the sport as the only independent engine supplier was strong, profitable and long-term, while also reaffirming the company’s commit- ment to the newly-agreed 1.6-litre V6 engine to be introduced in 2014. Williams is the second team that will have left Cosworth in two years, joining Lotus who also switched to Renault this year, but when asked if their departures would impact the company’s F1 future, Gallagher told Manipe F1: “It won’t affect our future in F1.” “ We did the deal with three new teams to come back into Formula One in the late spring of 2009, that was with Virgin/Manor, Campos and USF1, and then unexpect- edly in September we got Team Lotus and then unexpectedly in November we got Williams, so for a brief period we had five teams,” he recounted. “ We didn’t envisage the return to Formula One featuring Williams. In fact we envisaged it featuring three new teams and we did our plan based on the worst case belief that at least one of the new teams would struggle and possibly go out of business. “Each engine supply agreement with each team is profitable in its own right.” Last chance to support Ormond Street charity Cosworth: Williams departure of no concern F1 NEWS >> 12
