Williams Week – 7th September 2020 – The Week in Review

The Williams Week

A round-up of interesting Williams related stories found on the web this week:

“The reality is I was unfortunate for it to hit my car but that could have hit a marshal or someone in the crowd if they were to be there, so that’s the most important thing.” – George Russell

Russell calls for further safety improvements following “dramatic” Spa smash

“This FP1 session, I will have more experience, greater confidence and I feel even better than before, ahead of jumping in the car. Of course, we will do more preparations in the simulator at the factory this week following Spa. I am keen to get in the car and release that clutch lever.” – Roy Nissany

Williams hands Roy Nissany second F1 practice outing at Monza

“The Red 5 was very interesting for me. The car is absolutely iconic and, just like me, has the starting number 5” – Sebastien Vettel

Vettel buys Mansell’s Williams FW14B

“I’m not BCE. I have nothing to do with it.” – Bernie Ecclestone

Ecclestone denies buying Williams

“I wouldn’t be where I am today without Frank and Claire. They gave me my shot in F1, like they have done for so many drivers, engineers, mechanics and countless others over the years. Thank you for everything. We’ll keep driving like hell to honour the Williams name.” – George Russell

14 wins, nine constructors’ championships (the most for one team boss) and seven drivers’ championships are the headline numbers for Sir Frank Williams across 44 seasons as a Formula 1 team owner/principal, but the achievement and legacy spans far wider than just statistics for the most archetypical of F1 independents.
