Brazil’s Globo said Smedley has now served his mandatory gardening leave and will be on the pitwall in Bahrain. “Rob will be at the track and I will work in the factory and at the tests throughout the season,” Williams’ chief engineer Rod Nelson is quoted as saying. “He will bring a lot of experience and a lot of good ideas,” Nelson added.
