PROFILE

WilliamsWilliams is one of the world's leading Formula One teams - and the name has been synonymous with top-level motor racing since the 1960s. Since 1977, when the team was founded, Williams has won 16 championships (nine constructors and seven drivers, with Alan Jones, Keke Rosberg, Nelson Piquet, Nigel Mansell, Alain Prost, Damon Hill and Jacques Villeneuve). Frank Williams and Patrick Head's alliance began in 1977 and the team displayed strong performances soon. In 1980, Jones took the championship, helping the team to its first constructors' title in the process. Success was certain for the team even if they were spread out with several highs and an abysmal low when Ayrton Senna died in a Williams in 1994. But after it lost BMW as a partner at the end of 2004, its lows spread out as consistently. In the latter half of the 2000s, difficulties emerged with the squad failing to add another race win from 2005 to 2012. Now revamped with Mercedes engines, Williams will hope to strengthen its foundations for a solid future again.

QUOTES ON WILLIAMS

As most people would expect reaching 600 Grands Prix means very little to me! I do have to admit, however, that there have been some brilliant moments over the 40 years that I've been racing, and there have also been some moments of great sadness. Most of the time it has been a most pleasurable experience. If I was 40 years younger, I would still choose the same path towards where I find myself today.
- Sir Frank Williams (co-founder of Williams F1).
