Williams Past Champions

I look back in fondness to the days when Nigel Mansel, Damon Hill, and Jacques Villenueve piloted the mighty Williams to victory.  It seems like those days were so long ago.  Williams was unbeatable.  Now they say they have a plan to return to championship form.
Team Principal and co-owner Sir Frank Williams says the Grove based squad has just begun a 'three to five-year' plan to recapture the sort of competitiveness that allowed his outfit to dominate in the 80s and 90s. "But of course we always want to win," the Briton told Motorsport Aktuell.  
With the Toyota-powered FW29, Williams already appears more competitive than in 2006; a season described by Sir Frank as 'unblinkingly, humiliatingly shocking.  'Chief Designer Ed Wood said:  "We are at the beginning of our recovery.   At the moment we are not thinking about beating Ferrari and McLaren - that will come in a couple of years.   Now we have to build step by step."
Williams does seem to get the most out of the Toyota powerplant. Sir Frank Williams and his long-time partner and chief engineer Patrick Head are probably the last of a breed of gentleman racers that go back to the beginnings of the modern days of Formula One racing. I salute them.
