Now in its fifth year The Williams Database Winter Challenge is a bit of fun for the off-season. For ten weeks between the 2021 and 2022 F1 seasons there will be ten Williams related questions for you to answer.

Questions will be posted on Twitter (@williamsdbf1) at midnight GMT every Wednesday – you have 24 hours to DM your answer so no need to rush. Everyone that gives the correct answer with 24 hours of positing the question will get ten points. The person with the most points at the end of the ten weeks will win. If more than one person has the same number of points at the end there will be a quick fire tie-break round.

So that means to be in with a chance you have to answer as many questions as you can over the ten weeks but you don’t need to rush to answer.

What you can win

This year, just the last admiration of all the other Williams fans!

Current Positions

Previous Weeks Questions

Here’s a reminder of the previous questions:

Week One

This, of course, is the company registration number of Williams Grand Prix Engineering.

Week Two

To date Williams have had 128 pole positions. It was very nearly 129 when George Russell put his car second on the grid for the 2021 Belgium Grand Prix.

Week Three

I was surprised at just how many people got this one right. Just shows how many fans will collect anything (myself included). The answer, as you can see from the below, is 82 defence and 70 attack.

Week Four

2018 Italian Grand Prix Sirotkin/Stroll

Week Five

Sir Frank’s mother’s name was Claire McGrath as shown in the birth index below:

Week Six

The address was 361 Bath Rd, Cippenham, Slough and here they are outside the premises.

Week Seven

The wheelbase of the FW20 was 2914mm – you can read about the stats of 1998’s challenger verses the 1978 car here. And here’s confirmation from Autocourse.

Thanks to @c7Carl for this confirmation picture!

Week Eight

Sir Patrick Head’s second wife is called Monica Colombelli.

Week Nine

When new Williams team mates Albon and Latifi last paired up they scored a combined 303 points.

Week Ten

Nigel Mansell entered 97 races with Williams but, crucially, only actually started 95. This is because he missed both the 1985 French and 1987 Japanese Grands Prix. You can see a list of all his results in the table here:

Tie Break

The seven Williams drivers champions (Jones, Piquet, Rosberg, Prost, Mansell, Hill & Villeneuve) have collectively scored 1,421.5 points. Here are all those points scoring finishes.
