Sir Frank Williams, who built the Williams team into one of the most successful in Formula 1, is in a stable condition after going into hospital.

"Frank's medical condition is a private matter and therefore the family will not be releasing any further details at this time," read a statement.

Williams spent some time in hospital with pneumonia in 2016.

He has used a wheelchair since a car crash in France in 1986.

During his time with Williams, the team won nine constructors' championships and seven drivers' titles, and dominated much of the 1980s and 1990s.
