So what a day it was. A glorious Silverstone day really complete with sunshine and showers. Let’s face it, a day watching F1 cars at the home of the World Championship is never complete without the full cycle of British weather!
But a week last Friday, it was just fantastic to be part of Williams’ 40th Anniversary celebrations and how wonderful it was too, to see so many people turn out to join in the celebrations. If you were there, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did, if you weren’t, I’m sorry you couldn’t make it, but let me just say that the sight of the FW14B, back on a racetrack, where it belongs, not only made the hairs stand on the back of my neck, but brought a little tear to the eye as well.
The great and good of Williams past and present came along, chatted and shared stories from the past, mingled with the fans and every single one of them loved every single minute. And why shouldn’t they? This was a day where the love for one of the great teams of F1 history, was totally in evidence. Where it was right to celebrate the past and Williams’ key part in the sport over the last four decades.
