I have wanted to do this video for years. To thank you for all your support, I wanted to give back to you in a video I poured a lot into. Not just time. My passion, energy, and creativity. The objective is to help people see Williams were at one time the top of the food chain. And their behavior today, while it may seem stubborn, it makes sense when you see what they had to go through to get here, especially Frank Williams.
