Five Favourite Friday... Williams F1 Race Cars



Getting back into the swing of doing a regular Five Favourite Friday, I needed to pick a topic for this week. In honour of attending the Williams Racing's 40th anniversary celebratory event held at Silverstone today, I've decided to chose my favourite Williams formula one cars from through out their 40 years of racing.

1) Canon Williams Renault FW14b (1992)
If it wasn't for the celebration event, I would probably have not chosen the FW14b, but hearing the passionate way that the Silverstone FM team described the car and the appreciation from the fans seeing the car take to the track once again for the first time in 25 years, means I've got to include it on my list. It has been described as the best ever Formula One car, so who am I to question it!

2) Rothmans Williams Renault FW18 (1996)
The FW18 was driven by Damon Hill to the Driver's Championship and, with his teammate Jacques Villeneuve, the Constructor's Championship.  Williams were so dominant in the early 1990s, and this was the car that was running and winning races when my interest in Formula One at it's highest

3) Winfield Williams Supertec FW21 (1999)
Although I've seen that other people have said they don't like the red livery Williams' from the end of the decade, but I like it.
 
4) BMW Williams FW26 (2004)
Another car that splits opinion, but I like 2004 design which included a 'walrus' nose - I think that the car looks good. It was used during the start of an era of small on car fins to improve aerodynamics, which adds to the sense of speed.
 
5) Williams Martini Racing FW40 (2017)
The current design and livery, one that I really like.  The stripes that start on the nose and follow the lines of the car through to the rear wing add something special to the car, and on a white background make the car standout in the field.

Should I have included your favourite? If not let me know which one you like and why in the comments below.

Like me, Nikki hasn't done a Five Favourite Friday post in a while but we'll both be back with our favourite Thomas The Tank Engine & Friends characters.
