Citing the confirmation of a team spokeswoman, Reuters news agency reports that Gillan - who only joined the famous British team just over a year ago - wants to "spend more time with his family".

Gillan worked for Jaguar from 2002, moving from Red Bull to Toyota in 2006 to head the Cologne based team's aerodynamics department.

Reuters claimed that, alongside Mike Coughlan and Jason Sommerville, Gillan was "one of a top technical trio credited with turning around" Williams' fortunes after its abysmal 2011 season.
