prelvu commented on the post, “Frank loved it” – Williams founder's reaction to new livery

1 week ago

In the round-up: Williams deputy team principal Claire Williams says her father, Sir Frank, approves of the team’s revised livery for the 2019 F1 season.

What they say

Williams was asked what the team founder made of the switch to pale blue and white:

Frank loved it. You might be surprised to hear that, but he did.

I have to say I was a little nervous going and presenting it to him as Frank is very traditional, he’s very protective of that navy blue and white.

But understanding the arguments behind it, that this is telling the world a very clear story, delivering a very clear message in my mind where we are as a company, he is fully behind it.

And I’m still here. If he didn’t like it, he probably would have fired me.
