Well it's a shame giving the Heritage of this team . It has had some legends driving for them . But let's face it Claire has done nothing at all to make this team succeed , giving the success Frank had while he was in charge. Was she the wrong person for the job ABSOLUTELY . Frank should have placed someone else in charge Instead of passing the responsibility to her daughter who hasnt got a clue . Yes shes done the right thing by selling the team . Shes walking away with a tidy profit and what has been achieved by William's will all be down to Frank not Claire .

It takes real guts to basically say your not good enough. She is a truly amazing person but unfortunately they will always be someone better than you in life which is obviously has accepted. Incredible women.

Williams will forever be remember as a CLASS ACT Formula one racing team, they are classy and sport-passionate something to be proud of, specially in f1 bussiness. All the best to this team

Having watched the Netflix series it was clear she was out of her depth. Nice lady but being the daughter of a racing legend doesn't make you qualified or capable of doing the same.

I love all the team owners and team managers in here. All of you should go run a team and I bet it would be an outstanding success. Clowns. I bet non of you have ever even been on a team let alone how it all works.

For a sport that is mainly for guys. It's amazing how she ran her father's job for so long. Hope she would be happy about what she have done to the sport of men. Now there will be ladies who has a chance or taught about becoming a same position she done. Would want to do it as she did. Have a great life.

Had a massive lump in my throat watching recent interviews with Claire. Williams have been such a massive influence in the sport. To see her and the family leave the sport on what most will see a low point is SO sad. Least she's chosen to leave the sport for the right reasons. Good luck to her, Frank and the rest of the family. Hopefully the future of the team does her and the family proud. Have a fantastic retirement / future Claire. You and the family richly deserve it!! x

Yes, massive respect, too many have got too much to say (negative) I so wished it would have come together better, innumerable reasons why it didn't, but imagine her stature if a little luck went their way (you know there's always at least a small element of that)

The only way a family could own an F1 team today and be successful both monetarily and on the circuit would be if the principle owner also coincidentally was a genius Engineer/Aerodynamicist with the Systems Analysis/Program Management skills of the Apollo Moon shot team. Claire has some deep family loyalty but beyond that I don't think she brought anything to F1 (a Ph.D. Aerospace Engineer who works for a large American defense contractor's Missile System company.

Hey Claire, you should have given it a try behind the wheel to see what the real team is about. There is more to it than being a CEO, especially if your life is on the line. Yours never was. It was about business. Businesses come and go.......but good drivers do not.

Reason is simple. She is not her father and "formula one" is in the toilet. Actually it's good to see a former great team exit this now miserable auto event. Staying around longer would really have tarnished the team that frank built. RIP Williams, you gave us such wonderful memories over the decades

Formula one has turned into a Media circus over the years .If it wasn,t for BERNIE -E. it would have ended years ago after some really bad crashes and team were struggling to fund rebuilding their cars and loaning tyres to other teams who didn,t have spares ones .If it wasn,t for men like FRANK- W COLLIN- C - JACK - B BRUCE- MC and others who were driven men , built cars to win on a budget . The Drives who passed away , so safety rules came in to protect every one in the sport which cost more money . The ingenuity that the teams have come up with over the years is staggering and the budgets get bigger .So I think Frank Williams and Claire have given it their best and achieved so much over the years .It,s better to go with Dignity than to be put on GARDENING LEAVE like RON DENNIS when he spoke out . Corporations and Accountants think they run every thing these days , BUT IT STILL TAKES ONE OR TWO PEOPLE TO START IT ALL OFF, with a passion.

Frank was a stubborn and reckless autocrat who couldn't bear the fact that he didn't achieve the success he thought he deserved, then fell out with his son, who should have been the one to go on and run the business and to spite him, placed Claire in control, who cluelessly ran the business down and ultimately into failure. Well done Franky! Happy Christmas.

Such a great interview, and she's such a class act. The sport is made worse by the exit of the Williams family, and the idea of a family run team that started from the bottom. I hope to see greater diversity in F1 from the typical corporate constructors, and hope maybe one day the barrier for entry into F1 is lower so if another family "startup" wants to get into it they can.

Kind of ironic to see Claire Williams wearing a Williams team shirt with a Mercedes AMG logo on it speaks volumes about this money grubbing sport don't it ? F1 destroyed williams. Funny how the team with the less money still has to buy Mercedes AMG Parts but can't win a race. That goes to show you what a joke Formula 1 is #WilliamsIsF1

In a sport and a world that puts winning above all else, I would say this to Claire Williams: Your worth as a person, and your legacy as team principal of Williams Racing, may not be about the things we're told matter. The podiums, the constructors' titles! The big sponsors! Your legacy is with the grace, dedication, doggedness with which you sought to keep your dad's team going. Your legacy is with the relationships with those men and women in the Williams Racing team over the years. It is perhaps giving others second and third chances they would never get anywhere else! You may not have a cabinet full of trophies, but you are an inspiration. Hold your head up high, and I do pray for the best for you. Good people are not easy to come across in this man eat man world, and confident that legacies mean more than trophies, podiums, and dollars, may your star shine on bright. Never ever look down on your journey, or let it be in any way be diminished by the titles you didnt win or the accolades you did not receive. Your journey is an inspiration to the 99% (that dont win) on how to live and lead when things aren't going well or according to plan! When I think of Williams Racing, it is your legacy I will remember! Shine on, wherever the journey takes you next!

This once glorious team had to be sold because of years of making too many bad decisions, which means bad leadership. I am puzzled by all the TV accolades of Claire Williams. No doubt she is passionate about the team, but the downward spiral began and continued under her stewardship. Being the back marker of the field, despite having the Mercedes engine? All accolades should be directed to a deserving Frank Williams, a true racer and motorsport guy. The Family is very fortunate to have come out of this with a pile of money. At least the Williams name will continue in Formula One.

I think people forget that Claire has been in charge for 7 years, and in that time they had 15 podiums and two 3rd place finishes in the constructors. Once ahead of Ferrari, and once ahead of Red Bull. Not a bad job from Claire if you ask me.

Williams put family loyalty ahead of what was best for the Long-term Future of Williams F1 Team and Performance Package and this is the net result contrast that to McLaren who put Teams Future ahead of loyalty to long time Team Principal Ron Dennis who McLaren management thought Ron Dennis was holding the team back McLaren put F1 Team Future 1st unlike Williams who put Family loyalty 1st and what was Best for the long-term future of the Team 2nd And where are McLaren now and where are Williams now Italian GP Sainz 2nd with 18 points and where was Williams ZERO POINTS Need i say anything more

Thats a bit unfair on Ron Dennis after all the Honda/Senna glory he was only trying to repeat it with a Honda/Alonso package, and it must have looked good on paper but Honda grossly underestimated the challenge and Alonso behaved like a selfish, imature, spoilt kid!.

They would'nt allow Adrian Newey or Paddy Lowe to buy into the team, instead they sell to a bunch of money lenders with absolutly no knowledge, experience or passion for the sport and since nepotisem put Claire in command, they've won precisely nothing!!!!!! It's a tough old world, and company's usually go down the pan because they deserve to.
