The BBC are reporting that Sir Frank Williams, team principal of the Williams Martini Racing Team has been hospitalized with a pressure sore on his back.
The quadriplegic is said to be undergoing routine treatment and is responding well. As a result deputy team principal Claire Williams did not travel to Austin for this weekend's United States Grand Prix at the Circuit of the Americas.
Williams had been scheduled to take part in today's FIA Team Principal press conference but was unable to attend. The matter has been referred to the race stewards in Austin.
