I think that Frank has protected and preserved Williams' place on the grid through the years through continued fiscal responsibility. Others have come and gone, yet here they are with a much improved car and a bank account in the black. Other teams can only wish. Pay drivers irk me a little, but every driver's worth is determined by ability and how much money they bring, or can generate, for the team. And after all, Williams did make an attempt to sign Kimi. Who else of quality and reputation was available? I think having Frank and Patrick step away from the team will improve their business position, and I suspect the race team as well. They have been a bit stagnant in development but that seems to be changing. Here's hoping...

15 years too late. Williams had to go this route 15 years ago but instead Frank was too full of himself first he let Adrian Newey go because Williams was too good for him and then reject many innovation partnerships. Sir Frank Williams built and destroyed Williams all by himself.
