This FW19 is made up of invaluable F1 history and commemorates an incredible season for the Williams team.
This show car represents the last Championship-winning car produced by Williams, with the car itself being deemed as one of the best ever built. The FW19 race car was designed by the infamous Adrian Newey and Patrick Head as technical director. Their expertise combined with an incredibly powerful Renault V10 engine meant the car proved to be a showstopper and truly dominated the track, beating the then two-time World Champion, Michael Schumacher.
With the Canadian racing driver Jacques Villeneuve behind the wheel, the team achieved momentous success in the 1997 season. Villeneuve secured seven first place finishes, with the win at the 1997 British Grand Prix being the team's 100th race victory. This was a momentous moment for driver Villeneuve and the Williams racing team; Williams became one of only four other teams in Formula 1, alongside Ferrari, McLaren and Mercedes, to secure 100 race wins.
Legendary driver Jacques Villeneuve won the Drivers' World Championship, only three points ahead of renowned Ferrari driver Michael Schumacher. The last race of the season in Jerez made for an astonishing F1 moment that would go down in the history books, with fans voting it as one of the top 10 races of all time.
It was also in this iconic car, the FW19, that Williams won their ninth Constructors' Championship and second consecutive, with an incredible 123 points scored. These monumental achievements were all secured between 1980 and 1997, which remained a record until Ferrari surpassed it in 2000.
