We are filled with sadness to hear of the passing of Sir Frank Williams.
He was a true pioneer of motorsport, whose contribution to Formula 1 through the founding of Williams Racing and his continuing dedication to both his team and the sport, was incredible. Sir Frank famously overcame career and personal adversity to become a leader and an icon. His impact continues to inspire and encourage those involved in Formula 1 and the wider motorsport community.
McLaren Applied Chairman Nick Fry said “Sir Frank Williams was one of the founding fathers of modern Formula 1. His desire for engineering perfection and inspirational leadership transcended his own team and extended into all of Formula 1and on into the automotive industry. Sir Frank combined a fierce competitive disposition with a kindly and gentlemanly manner, caring for all in our sport. He will be sadly missed. Our thoughts are with his family.”
On behalf of McLaren Applied, we offer our sincere condolences to Sir Frank’s friends, family and everyone at Williams Racing.
