Hamilton pays tribute to Williams and hails racing legend as ‘one of the kindest people I had the pleasure of meeting’

LEWIS HAMILTON has paid tribute to F1 legend Frank Williams – calling him a ‘racer and fighter at heart’. The Williams F1 team founder passed away aged 79 earlier on Sunday after a lengthy battle with illness. Tributes to the popular team boss have poured in from all corners of the sport. “Williams started out as a racing driver and mechanic – before establishing his own team in Formula Two and Formula Three. Sir Frank made the step up to F1 in 1969 and his team finished second on two occasions that season. Williams was married to Virginia in 1974, who lost her battle with cancer in 2013.
