Formula 1 team founder Frank Williams has been discharged from hospital and is now “on the mend at home”.

Williams, who was team principal from the team’s creation in 1977 until this year, had been admitted to hospital – reported by the team on December 15 – and that statement said that “Frank’s medical condition is a private matter and therefore the family will not be releasing any further details at this time”.

On December 24 the team released a statement to say that Williams had been released from hospital care.

“We’re delighted to say that Sir Frank has been discharged from hospital and is now on the mend at home,” read the team’s statement.

“The Williams family would like to thank everyone for their support during this difficult time, and to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.”

Williams and his then deputy team principal and daughter Claire stepped down from the team at the Monza race following the purchase of the team by Dorilton Capital.
