Williams at 40: ‘Frank Williams is the closest we have to an Enzo Ferrari’
F1 team with humble beginnings is still going strong at the age of 40 thanks to the man whose vision and determination brought a series of championship titles
“The reason Williams is still here is because it is all Frank cares about. F1, this team and going racing,’” explains Sir Frank Williams’s daughter and the team’s deputy principal, Claire. She should know, having been born just a year before Williams formed the team that bears his name and which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. McLaren and Ferrari have been racing in Formula One for longer but no man has run an F1 team as long as Williams – it is the single-minded determination his daughter knows so well that has seen them through.
