Sir Frank Williams obituary: A Formula 1 icon & one of greatest team owners

Last updated on Less than a minute agoLess than a minute ago.From the section Formula 1. Jones and his Argentine team-mate Carlos Reutemann both narrowly missed out on a Williams double in 1981 before both quit the sport. Williams’s team manager Peter Windsor, now a journalist, was in the car with him and was unhurt. Williams had been a very active man and a keen runner, but he was determined to carry on despite the difficulties caused by the accident. In fact, Williams were about to embark on their period of greatest success. Williams have provided the platform for some of the sport’s most brilliant engineers to make their names. Williams was the first team to give the great Brazilian a trial in F1, back in the summer 1983, but decided against signing him. Williams is survived by his three children, Jonathan, Jamie and Claire.
