According to Press Association, Hollinger has an option to buy Wolff's remaining 10 per cent stake.

Speaking about the sale, Wolff said: "It was always the plan to reduce the shareholding in Williams towards a level that is clearly a financial investment/

"This was important to Daimler for conflict of interest reasons and for compliance reasons.

"But it was a task to find somebody who was good for the company, who was good for the family, and who had the spirit I had when I joined Williams as a financial investor."
