Behind Every Great Man – Thoughts for Sir Frank Williams

On the eve of a new F1 season it is sad to report the following:

“It is with great sadness that today we report the death of Lady Virginia Williams, wife of Williams Founder and Team Principal Sir Frank Williams.

Lady Virginia, or ‘Ginny’ as she was better known, died peacefully at the family home last night surrounded by Frank and the rest of the Williams family. Ginny had been bravely battling cancer for the past two and a half years.

Ginny will always be an integral part of Williams’ history and success, and today we pay tribute to a much loved member of the Williams family who will be sorely missed. Please respect the family’s wishes for privacy at this time.”

They say that, behind every great man is a great woman. My thoughts go out to Sir Frank and his family.
