Williams - The Story of a Racing Team charts the growth of Frank Williams' team, from the early days in the sixties - when the organisation that was to become Williams Grand Prix Engineering was being established - through to considerable Formula 1 Grand Prix success in the present day. The book relates every race in which the Williams team has participated. This includes Formula 2 events, and each Formula 1 Grand Prix is documented with statistics which include grid positions, lap times and full results. Bruce Grant-Braham also looks behind the scenes at the men who have shaped the Williams Team: Frank Williams, whose entrepreneurial skills and charasmatic leadership have proven the driving force behind the team; Patrick Head, whose most influential design, FW07, established Williams on the Formula 1 grid; and drivers as various in character as Piers Courage, Alan Jones, Keke Rosberg, Nelson Piquet and Nigel Mansell, to name but a few. Personality clashes, 'politics' both on and off the the track, changes from naturally aspirated to turbo-charged cars (and back again) - all this and the latest developments in Formula 1 technology are covered, making for a fascinating read. Williams - The Story of a Racing Team provides a thorough, in-depth analysis of the Williams team set against the wider backdrop of Formula 1 Grand Prix racing. Stunning photographs throughout illustrate two decades of sporting achievement.
