Sir Frank Williams dies aged 79

Very sad news.
We've lost a legend.

I love this picture. Back in the glory days, together with Keke.

Rest in peace.

Certainly one of the people that shaped F1 from the early 70's onward. So that's half a century!

Wow, sad news indeed. Some of my most memorable/favorite moments of F1 were him along with BMW power/Ralf/JPM.

RIP good sir.

Many these days won’t know who he is when they watch F1 but he is a legend of the sport. What he and Patrick Head did at Williams in the 80s and 90s was outstanding.

They were more a force in those days than many would understand largely due to that paring of management, getting the money in snd sheer raw engineering.

RIP Sir Frank you are a legend and will be sorely missed by the sport.
