Williams are to again receive the support of their rival teams over the coming days as they pick up the pieces in the wake of the fire that overshadowed their Spanish Grand Prix win.
Team principal Sir Frank Williams and chief operations engineer Mark Gillan both expressed their sincere gratitude at the assistance given to them in tackling a blaze that gutted their garage at Barcelona's Circuit de Catalunya 90 minutes following a historic triumph for Pastor Maldonado.
Personnel from a number of teams grabbed fire extinguishers and hoses to quell a blaze that began in the fuel area and is still under investigation by the team, local authorities and the FIA.
Rival teams are now expected to offer assistance as Williams look to prepare for the next race without some of their equipment.
Thirty-one people were treated overall, however, only one from Williams now remains in a Barcelona hospital where he continues to receive treatment for burns, after two were released today after initially suffering from smoke inhalation.
Williams claim the team member concerned is "in good spirits", with his family "in constant communication", and that he is due to return to the United Kingdom within the next 48 hours to receive further medical care.
Williams, who was delivering a victory speech at the time an explosion rocked the garage, has been touched by the scenes he witnessed yesterday as so many people came to his team's aid.
He said: "I was pleased to welcome back to the factory the majority of our team this morning.
"One of our people remains in Spain for further medical assistance, but we are all looking forward to his imminent return.
"Everyone at Williams F1 is extremely relieved this event was contained as quickly as it was and the damage which occurred was, relatively speaking, limited in its nature.
"While the incident was unexpected and definitely most undesirable, it has demonstrated the genuine cohesiveness, camaraderie and spirit of co-operation that exists within the Formula One paddock.
"The astonishing response from the teams and other paddock personnel was immediate, unconditional and overwhelming."
Gillan further expressed the team's appreciation as he said: "We were overwhelmed by the support. It was really impressive.
"Williams would like to say thanks to the teams, the FIA, FOM and all of those who came to help. It was a serious issue and I am very grateful indeed.
"What happened after a great result is very disappointing, but things were limited by the fast response of our team and everyone who helped."
However, a vast amount of equipment was destroyed, adding to the pressure on the team to prepare for the Monaco Grand Prix, with first practice next Thursday, a day earlier than any other race.
Again, though, the other teams are to come to Williams' aid as it is understood the Grove-based marque have received several offers with regard to the loaning of equipment to see them through their troubles.
In particular, three of McLaren's top brass who previously worked at Williams in sporting director Sam Michael, technical director Paddy Lowe and director of development/design Neil Oatley, offered help almost immediately.
Despite F1's reputation as a sport in which the major players are often at loggerheads and divided, the unity on this occasion has been striking.
Regardless of the assistance at hand, Gillan has expressed the difficulties Williams now face in the coming days.
"We had a lot of damage and lost a lot of equipment, including IT equipment," added Gillan.
"Over the next couple of days we will be looking at where we are parts-wise.
"We will have everything we need to run operationally at Monaco, but we may be missing a few of the extras because obviously we don't carry a complete set of spares for everything."
