Sir Frank Williams has been presented with the BBC’s Helen Rollason Award at the prestigious Sports Personality of the Year ceremony.
Named in honour of the BBC presenter who died of cancer 11 years ago, it is presented for ‘outstanding achievement in the face of adversity.’
Accepting the prize and reflecting on the journey he’s taken during his career, Williams said: “It’s one I would love to do again if I were younger. I certainly wouldn’t try and do anything different, except avoid the accident of course. But I would have taken it as it comes.”
Damon Hill presented the prize, while Williams was accompanied on stage by his wife Virginia, Patrick Head, Adam Parr and other personalities from the world of F1 including Eddie Jordan, Martin Brundle and Christian Horner.
