Williams Ran The FW14B On Track For The First Time In 25 Years

One of the most legendary F1 cars of all time was back on track during Williams' 40th anniversary celebration

Alongside the McLaren MP4/4 and the Lotus 49, the Williams FW14B is arguably the greatest F1 car of all-time and fans who were at Silverstone yesterday [Friday] got to see the legendary machine run for the first time in 25 years!

Williams Heritage driver Karun Chandhok was the one lucky enough to take the car out on track for the first time since 1992, the year Nigel Mansell won the world title in dominant fashion.

What a glorious sound! 🙌 #f1 #williams40 #formula1 #wtf1

It was all part of an event at Silverstone to celebrate Williams’ 40th anniversary which we were lucky enough to attend.

Ex-Williams legends like Keke Rosberg, Damon Hill, Nigel Mansell, Nico Rosberg and Pastor Maldonado were all at the event, as well as Williams founders Sir Frank Williams and Sir Patrick Head.

Another treat was current Williams driver Felipe Massa sampling the six-wheel FW08B from 1982 which never actually competed in a Grand Prix.

Also cars at Silverstone included the March 761/7 that Williams debuted with in 1977, Hill’s title winner from 1996, Montoya’s 2003 BMW Williams, Maldonado’s race-winning car from the 2012 Spanish Grand Prix and more!
