The FOCA/FISA war gave Williams cause for concern. To ensure the team’s livelihood WGPE undertook a special project for Rover – to create the Metro 6R4 rally car.

Carlos Reutemann replaces Regazzoni.

The team goes one place better than 1979 by taking the constructors championship for the first time. Scoring nearly double the points of nearest challenger, Liger.

Alan Jones completes the double by taking the drivers championship too.
