Sir Frank Williams: Formula 1 team founder dies aged 79

Sir Frank Williams, founder and former team principal of the Williams Racing Formula 1 team, has died aged 79. During his time with Williams, the team won nine constructors’ championships and seven drivers’ titles, and dominated much of the 1980s and 1990s. He and daughter Claire moved away from the sport in September 2020 after selling Williams to US investors. In a statement, the Williams team said: “It is with great sadness that on behalf of the Williams family, the team can confirm the death of Sir Frank Williams CBE, founder and former team principal of Williams Racing, at the age of 79. We request that all friends and colleagues respect the Williams family’s wishes for privacy at this time.”. My thoughts are with all the Williams family and friends at this sad time.”.
