Lowe to Williams, Allison to Mercedes -

Paddy Lowe looks set to leave Mercedes and return to Williams.

At the weekend, McLaren denied reports claiming Lowe, 54, was actually set to vacate his post as Mercedes’ technical chief in order to return to another of his former employers.

Now, Germany’s Bild newspaper says Lowe actually seems headed to Williams, where he began his F1 career in 1987.

"He could replace Pat Symonds, who is contemplating retirement," said Bild.

Reports indicate that Lowe’s replacement at Mercedes will be James Allison, who earlier this year left Ferrari following the sudden death of his wife.
