Williams (2017)

Updated: Jul 31, 2019

This opens with Frank Williams smiling as the sound of engines roar. He’s 75 and looks as wide eyed as a young child. This isn’t called Frank Williams though, it’s a family story, the last in F1. Time wise it bounces around, getting the more recent disappointments of the team out of the way early. It covers everything from starting out, getting nowhere, through to the 80s dominance and Franks accident. Most interesting though are some of the recordings of Franks wife Ginny, no longer here, talking about the team and the world of racing. This along with the stuff from current team boss Clare Williams really makes this pretty captivating. A heartbreaking story, bravely told openly. Whether you’re a fan of F1 or not, this is a remarkable documentary.
