lizzie greenwood hughes looks back at his remarkable life. in a sport so dominated by global big business, frank williams made formula 1 a family affair. the former salesman was a pioneer, building up his motor racing team from nothing, starting in an empty carpet warehouse in oxfordshire and going on to become the best in the world. seven wins for frank williams�* team. up to the chequered flag and passed it goes alanjones. i have had a wonderful life, i wouldn't change anything, truthfully. an exciting business with something to worry about. which can be quite healthy, actually. it's been very good to me. in total, a williams racing won nine constructors world titles
and seven drivers titles. mansell finishes and he is world champion. and damon hill wins the japanese grand prix and i have got to stop, because i have got a lump in my throat. his achievements are all the more incredible, considering many of those victories came after he sustained a serious spinal injury in 1986. an "inconvenience", he called it. ayrton senna was the driver williams idolised and his tragic death while striving for him was something the family described as heartbreaking. the williams family eventually bowed out of the sport last year, but the team which bears his name and to which he dedicated his life, lives on. manchester united managed to cling on to a point at stamford bridge as they held leaders chelsea to a 1—1 draw. jadon sancho on the scoresheet with his first premier league goal —

them, jayden sanchez was clean through and with their first proper attack, manchester united were ahead. delight for michael carrick. it wouldn't last too long, and misplaced kick and penalty. the chance to win came to chelsea. theyjust couldn't take it. honours even at the bridge, a point on the road that manchester united would be too disappointed with as a new era for the club is about to begin. the two games have been two massive games, and ijust can't help think we lost out on that one today because the two wins would have been even better. i because the two wins would have been even better. ~ because the two wins would have been even better-— even better. i think we dominated the name even better. i think we dominated the game from — even better. i think we dominated the game from first _ even better. i think we dominated the game from first to _ even better. i think we dominated the game from first to last - even better. i think we dominatedl the game from first to last minute, did everything for this game, rhythm. _

away into the continent. pressure has been building from the west through the day, allowing those winds to ease down. but we still have sleet and snow to contend with, sliding its way southwards through scotland, england, pulling away from the south coast through this evening. we'll keep a few wintry showers, just clipping those eastern coasts. for many, clear skies. that's going to lead to frost and ice before cloud and outbreaks of rain push back into the north and west of scotland later in the night. for many, temperatures will be at or below freezing. down to “4 or —5 in rural parts of scotland and northern england. in the week ahead it does turn briefly milder on tuesday. it doesn't last long, it then turns colder from midweek onwards and there will be spells of wet and windy weather. the rain on monday will chiefly be across scotland, northern ireland and later in northern england, courtesy of this warm front. as its name suggests, behind it is some warmer air. so cloud and outbreaks of rain into scotland through the morning. there may be some snow over higher ground, just clipping parts of northern ireland, and it could slide into northern england through the afternoon. further south it stays mainly dry. the best of the sunshine stretching from east anglia down to dorset.
