The memories of Frank Williams live on

Legendary F1 team owner Sir Frank Williams would have celebrated his 80th birthday on this day had he not left us last November.

A fighter as well as a survivor, the massive battles - both personal and professional - Frank had to fight during his lifetime put him at the top of the F1 paddock's most admired list for several decades.

From the days of running his affairs from a telephone box to the glory years of Williams in the 1980s and 1990s, it was a rocky road from rags to riches.

And despite the tragedies and hardship, Sir Frank - seen here in the picture above with partner Patrick Head - never lost his heart for racing, and for its absolute pinnacle, Formula 1.

We salute the memory of a true racer!
