Williams Week – 11th January 2016
A round-up of interesting Williams related stories found on the web this week:
ESPN can reveal that FW38 will apparently keep the driver ‘fresher for longer’. The new car will also feature ‘chic white fascia and shiny stainless steel sides’. The cockpit will have ‘a special coating that prevents moulds and odours’; an ambition of the team ever since 1987 when Nelson Piquet had a nasty habit of relieving himself while driving.

As the Autosport International Show prepares to mark the team’s achievements, we take a look at some of the key numbers behind its success.
