Longest serving captain in Formula 1, Sir Frank Williams died at the age of 79. He marked more than 50 years as team principal in 2019, served two teams for the year, and subsequently won seven driver and nine constructors championships.

Sir Williams and daughter Claire run the team daily since 2013, only leaving Formula 1 last year after selling the team to the investment firm Dorilton capital. He served on the board until 2012, after which he resigned to free up some of the load.
