An interview with Sir Frank Williams, head of the Williams F1 racing team, on the benefits of standing.

When a friend gave the young Frank Williams a ride in his Jaguar XK150 in the late 1950s he didn't know what he was starting. In 1966 his young passenger went on to found Frank Williams Racing Cars to compete in Formula Two and Formula Three then, in 1977, together with one of his employees, engineer Patrick Head, he announced the formation of Williams Grand Prix Engineering. Now known as WilliamsF1 and based in Oxfordshire, the same team still competes in Formula One and has had many years of success, winning seven Drivers' championships and nine Constructors championships, making them the third most successful F1 team in history after Ferrari and McLaren.
