Sir Frank Williams out of hospital

Sir Frank Williams is out of hospital and back at the Williams F1 factory following a bout of pneumonia, Claire Williams has revealed.
Sir Frank Williams has left hospital and is almost back to full health at home after a bout of pneumonia, his daughter Claire Williams has confirmed.

The eponymous founder and majority owner of the nine-time championship winning Williams F1 team was taken ill after the Italian Grand Prix in Monza, but this was only made public by during last weekend's Mexican Grand Prix.

However, on the day Williams Martini Racing revealed Lance Stroll and Valtteri Bottas will form its driver line-up for the 2017 F1 season, Claire Williams confirmed he has now left hospital and is 'pretty much back to the old Frank'.

“He's now back home and he's back at the factory,” she said. “He came out of hospital on Monday. He contracted pneumonia after Monza and has been in hospital ever since. It has been a slow recovery, I'm pleased to say he's pretty much back to the old Frank we know and love. It's lovely to have him back with the team.”
