Continuing our series showcasing the faces behind the team, today it’s Ed Smith, No 2 Mechanic. “I have the glamorous title of rear-end mechanic for the team. This means that I am in charge of building the gearbox and rear suspension for the car. I’m also part of the pit crew so during pitstops I am the right-front gunman. We have had a great first season with Lance, with two highlights being the podium finish in Baku followed by the front-row start in Monza. I have worked in a few different motorsport teams over the years, but the group of guys we have working on the cars at Williams is one of a kind; we get on like family. When you spend five and a half months of the year traveling together it is important to have that kind of bond with each other. But now the season has ended, we are all definitely looking forward to having some time off over Christmas with our families.” #WeAreWilliams #WeAreRacing #F1 #TeamWork #WilliamsLife #PaddockLife 📸 @f1gregoryheirman
