SIR FRANK WILLIAMS’ family have asked for privacy with the Formula One legend ‘stable’ in hospital with an unknown medical condition.

The icon founded Williams in 1977 and turned it into one of the sport’s most successful teams.

But he is now facing a health battle, with his family telling concerned fans they will provide an update on his condition shortly.

A statement from his loved ones read: “Sir Frank Williams has recently been admitted to hospital where he is currently in a stable condition.

“Frank’s medical condition is a private matter and therefore the family will not be releasing any further details at this time.

“We ask for you to respect the family’s privacy. The team will release a further update in due course.”

The Williams family left the team Sir Frank found over 40 years ago in September.

After a series of difficult years, the team was sold to US investment group Dorilton Capital In August.

Sir Frank and daughter Claire, the deputy team principal, both stepped down.

Williams won nine constructors’ championships and seven drivers’ titles.

And they dominated F1 for large portions of the 1980s and 1990s.

But their last win at a Grand Prix occurred in 2012 and for the past two seasons they finished last in the championship.

Due to financial losses last year, the Williams family sought out new investment.

And that led to them leaving the team to make way for new management.
