Sir Frank Williams talks about the good times he had with Ayrton
“I always felt a great sense of responsibility,” said Frank Williams in an interview with the Guardian.
“He was a very special man and is almost certain that he was on the way to be president of Brazil,” thinks Frank Williams.
Sir Francis Owen Garbett Williams (born 16 April 1942) is founder and team principal of the Williams Formula One racing team.After a brief career as a driver and mechanic, funded by his work as a travelling grocery salesman, Williams founded Frank Williams Racing Cars in 1966. He ran drivers including Piers Courage and Tony Trimmer for several years in Formula Two and Formula Three. Williams purchased a Brabham Formula One chassis, which Courage drove throughout the 1969 Formula One season, twice finishing in second place.
In May 1994, following the death of Ayrton Senna in a Williams at Imola, he was charged with manslaughter in accordance with Italian law, but was cleared after several years. Since Senna’s death, all his F1 cars have carried a little tribute to Senna featuring the Senna “S” logo.
