Claire Williams says Frank Williams no longer leads the team

Claire Williams has revealed that her father and founder of Formula 1 team Williams, is no longer leading the team. Frank Williams has played a vital part in the journey and success of the team but it seems that now, due to health reasons, he is no longer fit to lead the team. 

"Frank no longer leads the team," Claire Williams said to

"Of course, I keep him informed about everything that is happening and he understands our situation. He also went through difficult times with Williams.

"People think that my dad would be furious about what is happening, but Frank is a realist who really understands the ups and downs of Formula 1," Williams added.

Williams has had a tough season and will hope that they can add to their single championship point after the Summer break. There has been much talk over their driver lineup and the future of Robert Kubica. 

However, Claire Williams said that she believed in both of her drivers.  

"We needed a driver like Robert with his engineering and technical intelligence," she said.

"It's not an easy season for him, but neither Robert nor George is able to show all their skills in this car. But Robert is doing everything I expect from him."

Williams will hope that they can drag themselves up from the bottom of the grid and fight for more points in the second half of the season.
