Lowe tipped for Williams move

London: Mercedes technical head Paddy Lowe is departing the Formula One world champions and has started on a period of 'gardening leave' before a likely move to rivals Williams.

The British-based Mercedes team made the long-awaited announcement in a statement on Tuesday, wishing him well but without revealing any future plans.

Lowe's move to Mercedes-powered Williams is likely to be the first of several that will ultimately see Williams's Finnish driver Valtteri Bottas travelling in the other direction to replace retired world champion Nico Rosberg.

The Briton, who has helped Mercedes win three successive constructors' and drivers' titles, started his F1 career at former champions Williams in 1987 and spent six years there before moving to McLaren.
