Williams at 40: Silverstone fan day


The Williams FW14B was one of the most dominant Formula 1 cars ever. En route to both world titles in ’92 the iconic machine won almost two thirds of that year’s Grands Prix and claimed all but one pole position. This year Williams turns 40 and, to celebrate, the British team fired up Mansell‘s FW14B once again.

In an exclusive track test for Motor Sport on Williams fan day, Karun Chandhok took to the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit in what Williams says is the first time the car has turned wheel in anger since clinching the title 25 years ago. Williams’s 2017 F1 racer was also in action, watched by a number of famous faces from Williams’s past and present who turned out en masse.
