Williams F1 news and updates:

Williams F1 is another team that has a bit of history in Formula One. The origins of the team can be traced as far back as 1977. What’s different about this team is that it has always been a family-run team.

The founder of the team is Sir Frank Williams, who was the team principal for a long time. Now, his daughter, Claire Williams succeeds him as the principal.

In its long history, Williams has produced seven world champions. They are, Alan Jones, Keke Rosberg, Nelson Piquet, Nigel Mansell, Alain Prost, Damon Hill and Jacques Villeneuve.

On-track Achievements

In their debut year in 1977, they did not enjoy such a great start. However, in 1978, Alan Jones brought forth their first points with a 4th placed finish in South Africa. He followed it up later in the season with 2nd in USA.

In 1979, Williams entered two cars, with Clay Regazzoni partnering Jones. Regazzoni bagged the first win in Great Britain, before Jones followed up with three back-to-back wins in Germany, Austria and Netherlands. He took another win in Canada, with Regazzoni in 3rd.

In 1980 and 1981, Jones clinched the World Constructor’s Championship for Williams F1. They did it again in 1986 and 1987 with Nelson Piquet winning the driver’s championship.

From 1992 to 1994, the British outfit sealed the Constructor’s championship again. They took their final Constructor’s titles in 1996 and 1997.
