    Default Sir Frank Williams takes the chequered flag

    Sir Frank Williams: Formula 1 team founder dies aged 79

    „Legend“ doesn’t do him justice.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    — Joe Strummer

    Very sad news. Williams were always my favourite team as a lad in the 80s watching Alan Jones win the title and later Nigel Mansell too.

    A genuinely lovely man too by all accounts.

    RIP Sir Frank

    Sad loss remembered for the days when F1 was worth watching.

    Just watched the documentary made in 2017 about Frank Williams on BBC iPlayer. Brought back loads of memories when those distinctive Williams livery with Canon logos dominated F1.
