Formula 1: Sir Frank Williams and Claire Williams step down from Williams team

The Williams family will leave the team founded by Sir Frank Williams more than 40 years ago after this weekend’s Italian Grand Prix. Sir Frank founded Williams in 1977 and turned it into one of the sport’s most successful teams. Williams and his daughter Claire, the deputy team principal, are stepping down. Financial losses last year led to the Williams family seeking new investment, and that in turn has led to them leaving the team to make way for new management. “We are greatly appreciative of Dorilton’s encouragement to continue, but in them we know the team will be in good hands and the Williams name will live on.
