Williams is a grand old powerhouse of Formula 1, a team that's been an integral part of elite single-seater racing for the best part of four decades, a participant for even longer, yet its best days seem well and truly consigned to history.
The track record speaks for itself. The current incarnation of Williams as an F1 constructor (discounting its 1977 season as a March customer team, and the prior outfit Sir Frank sold to Walter Wolf) is the third most experienced on the grid.
659 F1 races have been held during its life, of which it has won 114, finished on the podium in 311, started on pole for 128. Only Ferrari and McLaren can boast a better record. Williams's haul of nine constructors' titles, augmented by seven world championships for drivers, is bettered only by Ferrari - the grandest of grand epreuves equipes.
