On November 28 it was announced that Sir Frank Williams has passed away at the age of 79. A tribute to the former team boss and founder of the Williams team will be paid before the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix, Motorsport.com reports.

Sunday will start with a drivers' parade, followed by a minute of silence and a big applause. The podium will be used for a visual tribute and the Williams FW07 will also drive a lap.

During the first and second free practice, there were already some tributes to be seen. Sir Frank Williams' name is displayed on all the Formula 1 cars and the whole Williams team will wear a black armband this weekend. George Russell also has a special helmet with the name of the former team boss on it.
