NEWS STORY
03/11/2016

It was only last Friday that team CEO Mike O’Driscoll confirmed that the reason for Claire Williams absence at a number of recent races was due to the fact that her father, team founder Sir Frank Williams, is recovering from pneumonia.

Today, at the official confirmation of the team's driver line-up, Williams took time out to inform the media that her father has now left hospital and is continuing his recovery at home.

"I am very pleased and happy to say that he is now back home, and back at the factory with us," she told reporters at the team’s Grove HQ. "He came out of hospital on Monday.

"As everybody is aware now, he contracted pneumonia after the Italian GP at Monza and he has been in hospital ever since the start of September.

"It was a slow recovery," she admitted, "but I am really pleased to say that he is pretty much back to the old Frank that we know and love, so it is lovely to have him back with us at the team."

Pitpass, on behalf of its readers, wishes Sir Frank a speedy and full recovery.
