Williams

Synopsis: Charting the story of Formula One's most celebrated family, Williams is a thrilling account of how one man built a racing empire and a vivid, heart-rending portrait of the aftermath of a tragedy. Starting life with nothing other than a single-minded obsession for speed, Sir Frank Williams created one of the world's most enduring Formula One racing teams, winning nine Constructors' Championships over the last 40 years. But in 1986 at the height of this success, a near fatal car accident left Frank fighting to survive and the team's future hanging in the balance. Williams, a brand-new documentary from BAFTA-wining director Morgan Matthews, tells the story of Frank's rise to fame and how his family battled to keep him alive and the team afloat after the crash that left Frank wheelchair-bound for the rest of his life. Featuring heart-pounding racing footage, interviews with much-loved Formula One stars (including Sir Jackie Stewart, Nigel Mansell, Alan Jones and Sir Patrick Head) and candi

Do you still get

the same buzz out of it Frank?

Absolutely.

Truth is I love it,

the Formula 1 stuff, the real stuff,

the speed they're going

through the corners,

it's super men so I really believe

these guys meta morph

when they get into the cockpit you know.

They're immensely quick,

and the grip round the corners

is just astonishing.

If you're a pilot flying a jet,

that's wonderful work isn't it? Why?

Because I'm flying supersonic,

twice supersonic.

It blows my mind, the speeds

at which they can control these cars.

What was it, Top Gun,

what did Mav say to Goose?

He said I feel the need,

the need for speed",

I've never forgotten that.

- And you've always had that?

- Sorry?

You've always had that?

Well I've always been

a little boy for a start,

always enjoyed speed too.

That's why I finished up in a chair,

going too fast.

We didn't sit round

the table as a family

and discuss it and go

this is how we're gonna deal with it

or you know

mum needs some counselling,

the kids need counselling,

dad needs counselling to get through it.

We've never talked about it

as a family, dad's accident, ever.

If it wasn't for Mum

I personally don't think.

Williams would necessarily be around.

I'm a really firm believer in Williams

is not just always about Dad,

it's as much about Mum,

she stood by him through thick and thin,

I mean she saved his life.

Williams is unique now

in that it is

the last of the old style teams

where the team owners

all had their name over the door

and Williams is the only one left.

Frank's very rare

at interviews nowadays

so he doesn't seem as

approachable or accessible

from a, from a fan on the street.

Whether we see enough

of him nowadays

and whether

that's because of his health...

We didn't see him this weekend,

we saw Claire Williams

knocking about on Friday.

She's a great face on the TV as well,

where, you know being interviewed

and the like,

it's interesting to have

a lady as Principal as well.

I think I may have

had like the odd grand dream

but I never thought I would be given

the keys to the shop ever, ever, ever.

I think a bit of it's because

I'm a girl and you know

I can't possibly understand

anything about a car

and you know it's Dad's train set

and he doesn't wanna

hand it over to anybody else.

The Marussia of Will Stevens

gets out the way of Valtteri Bottas

and Max Verstappen

but Verstappen's all over

the back of that Williams.

What about Williams?

Where do you reckon

Williams will place today?

Uh... might get a point.

One of the top ten maybe.

Do you think they're

contenders anymore?

No, no.

Definitely not this year. No chance.

But Jacques,

you were the last driver

to win a World Championship

for Williams.

Yeah that's true, that's true.

- How long ago was that?

- Uh... '97 so 20 years ago.

- Yes.

- Long time.

Too long really, yeah.

In comes Bottas,

goes for another set,

he's just given up,

there's nothing they can do really

and I'm afraid that Williams

are gonna come away

from Monaco with nothing.

It's really frustrating,

it literally is banging your head against

a brick wall, what do we have to do?

You know I have to walk around

with my head held high

and I want to be able to do that um

and I don't feel that I can at the moment.

Do you think Frank feels it

as acutely as you do now?

I'm sure he does,

he's trusted in me

and I don't want him to ever doubt

that trust that he's put in me.

Do you ever doubt it

yourself or...

Um not right now no,

I've got a lot of fight in me left.

Claire is a tough piece of work,
