Pastor Maldonado was retained but was this season joined by Bruno Senna. Up-and-coming Valtteri Bottas joins as Reserve Driver.

After the awful 2011 season a return to Renault engines gives the team more hope and even a surprise win at the Spanish Grand Prix with Maldonado holding off a fast charging Alonso for his first win. Celebrations are short lived, however, as a fire breaks out in the team’s garages after the race.

Behind the scenes respected Williams Chairman, Adam Parr, steps down due, in part, to ringmaster Bernie Ecclestone:

“I had resigned that week, rightly or wrongly believing that Ecclestone had told my board that no Concorde offer would be forthcoming while I was running Williams. Under the circumstances, I chose to stand down so that the team could make the best deal possible with him. The offer arrived the day after my resignation had been announced.”
