One of the Best teams of 2005 with Juan Pablo Montoya and Ralf Schumacher lost the BMW engine in 2006 due to some differences between the team principle Frank Williams and BMW. Williams entered the 2006 season with a lot of hopes, and promise but could not face the challenge with the Cosworth engine.
The team did show a lot of improvement during the season and cannot be made small after all they have won 9 world titles The Team won their first title in 1980. We still remember the 1997 race win by Jacques Villeneuve who won the teams 100th race. The team is one which can be counted with the likes of Ferrari’s and Mclaren, they have had one of their worst seasons in 2006. But we can expect more from them in 2007.
Some of the most renowned names in Formula one have raced for Williams, including Finland’s Keke Rosberg; Britain’s Nigel Mansell and Damon Hill; France’s Alain Prost and Brazil’s Ayrton Senna. As a matter of fact the Legendary Ayrton Senna Died in the Williams Car during the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix. Another Interesting Fact about the Williams F1 team is that their best engine partnership was with the Renault engine- They won 5 out of their 9 races with a Renault Engine.
Williams made a deal with Toyota the Japanese car manufacturer who will supply Williams with the engines from 2007 Season. With the new driver Alexander Wurz joining Nico Rosberg on the grid. Continuing with Indian Narain Karthikeyan alongside the new Toyota star Japaneese Kazuki Nakajima will be their test drivers for 2007.
In the 2206 season the team used the Cosworth CA 2006 V8 it had a Displacement: 2398cc Engine Construction: Block and pistons aluminium, crankshaft steel billet, connecting rods in titanium reaching a Maximum Engine Speed of 20,000rpm. The team has decided to keep a few of the details undisclosed such as the Weight and Maximum power. Very little is know about the Car for the next season: It has a strong Williams FW30 Chasis not much is known about this Chasis at the moment but it is an advanced version of the FW28, it cases the Toyota RVX-07 Engine- not a lot known about this engine at this time. But we wish the Team the best for next season.
