It is with great sadness that we found out of the passing of Sir Frank Williams. He was an incredible icon and we had time over the years to speak with his family members: Claire Williams and interview Sir Frank in Monaco. He was a fighter and certainly shaped the sport for the better achieving goals that no one thought were possible. As our family continues to grow up, we throw back to the races where Sir Frank defied odds with his team and also achieved greatness with a Formula One Australian World Champion, that of Alan Jones. He has some amazing ups and downs as well as developing drivers for the better.

We will miss you, Frank.

“The Williams Racing team is truly saddened by the passing of our founder Sir Frank Williams. Sir Frank was a legend and icon of our sport. His passing marks the end of an era for our team and for the sport of Formula 1. He was one of a kind and a true pioneer. Despite considerable adversity in his life, he led our team to 16 World Championships making us one of the most successful teams in the history of the sport. His values including integrity, teamwork and a fierce independence and determination, remain the core ethos of our team and are his legacy, as is the Williams family name under which we proudly race. Our thoughts are with the Williams family at this difficult time.”

Jost Capito, CEO and Team Principal
