Williams – The latest Formula 1 news about Williams

Frank Williams seeks a place in Formula 1 in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Along with other fortune seekers, he enters a Grand Prix here and there in a car, and must turn over every coin. In 1977, Williams made an improvement, finally gaining his own status at the start of the Grand Prix.

In the early 1980s, Williams could open the champagne for the title when Alan Jones made the team champions. KK Rosberg and Nelson Pickett followed in his footsteps in the following years, but it was not until 1992 that the Williams machine really went. The team from Crowe in ’92, ’93, ’96 and ’97 graduated as successive drivers along with Mansell, Proust, Hill and Villanueva. The team’s last victory came in 2012, when Pastor Moldonado won the Spanish Grand Prix.

In recent years, the team has unfortunately slipped the tail of the Formula 1 phase. 2019 was the final low point of the racing station. It all started when the team showed up two days late during the test days in Barcelona and lost some very valuable test time and data. Because of this, the team was behind the times throughout the year and was always behind the scenes. A small World Cup point was collected in 2019.

In 2020, Race Stable was put up for sale by the Williams family, and halfway through the season the family disappeared from the film. Investment firm Dorilton Capital captured the team, and Williams immediately said goodbye to the team. However, the name persists to this day and the new owners want to renew the glory days.

Investments were made immediately in somewhat outdated facilities in places. Last year’s performance was a bit better, but the team was still lagging behind and couldn’t even get a point. With 2021 being the last change year, the team coming from Croven will have to compete on the podium again from 2022, who knows, maybe even the titles. Russell and Latifi are making drivers again this year.
