    The death of Sir Frank Williams marks the end of era. He was the last of the three men, Enzo Ferrari, Bruce McLaren and Frank Williams who gave the F1 the grandeur it has today. What they leave behind is three teams who carry their names with pride. As fans we should never forget what these names stand for, three men with one passion. R.I.P Frank......

    A maverick in the sport of F1 and creating his own team. RIP. His name still lives on in the team.
    It's not how start but how you finish.

    Huge respect for what he achieved and had to bear after his own and Ayrton's crash, he never gave up and I hope the Williams name will remain in F1. RIP Sir Frank.

    In France, Jacques Lafitte was asked to share an anecdote about F. Williams : he said things about himself, only himself as he always did. This man is like that, he can't stop saying how he was wonderfull, no matter the question, and it's not better with years

    A true gentleman that AFAIK never gave anyone something bad to tell bout him.

    RIP and truly a bad day for motosport.

    He was the last of the three men, Enzo Ferrari, Bruce McLaren and Frank Williams who gave the F1 the grandeur it has today.

    I agree with you but I'd add Ken Tyrrell to that list also.

    Tyrrell ended up selling his team to BAR (today in fact Dec. 2, 1997) after falling behind in the back of the grid after 29 years in F1. He also cited escalating costs.

    BAR then became HONDA then Honda became BRAWNGP then BrawnGP became MERCEDESAMGF1.

    RIP.

    although on the Senna crash, I remember Italian authorities wanted to charge the Williams team for manslaughter as they had illegal bits on Senna's car....

    A poor last minute welding on the Senna's stering wheel column was the reason of his death. Newey's responsability was also pointed. Newey and Williams weren't confortable with that. They escaped responsability. Nobody's perfect, even if we forget it for a while when they die.
