Hello and welcome to F1Minute for the 15th February 2011.
Sir Frank Williams has been inducted into the Motor Sport Hall of Fame this evening, as the magazine host their second annual event in London. BBC anchor Jake Humphrey conducted proceedings as Frank joined the eight founding members who joined last year - Tazio Nuvolari, Enzo Ferrari, Juan Manuel Fangio, Stirling Moss, Jim Clark, Jackie Stewart, Ayrton Senna and of course, Michael Schumacher. Alongside Frank, Sir Jack Brabham was also inducted, as were Dario Franchitti and Jody Scheckter.
As if one F1 Hall of Fame wasn’t enough, there could be another in the offing as the British Racing Drivers’ Club have revealed that part of their plans to revamp the Silverstone circuit include creating their own racing driver ‘hall of fame’ although it’s not clear whether that will include an actual hall or annual events yet.
For now, congratulations to all those in the ever-expanding Motor Sport Hall of Fame.
