A nice interview with a fellow who really seems well-grounded.

Yep, a nice little read. I've always admired Sir Frank and although he and PH have made some questionable decisions over the years, they both come across and honest, down to earth guys who are there for the racing.

I hope I get to see at least one more race win from my favourite team before SFW finally bows out of the sport. Go go Williams!

I doubt he is on Dave Richards, Aguri Suzuki, or Gerhard Bergers christmas card list though. :)

Great man would love to work for him! :up:

Any businessman with half a brain would fight to uphold the laws of the sport if not doing so meant possible repoccutions on his own business.

Fantastic quotes by Williams! If wish there was more of his independent spirit in F1!

Basically his spirit is: let´s go racing! whatever it takes! me against you!

Just a few years ago he single handedly went against FOTA/all other teams, and backed the 2tier/cost capping F1 from Mosely. Then he comes with statements like this after securing some oil money and people still wax lyrical!

Best team principal hands down, the tough time he's been through made him the man who he is now.
