The FW14 was designed by Adrian Newey and was used by the Williams team in the 1991 and 1992 Formula One seasons. It was first Williams car by Newey who came from March in the mid-1990. Based on much larger budget he was able fully develop his ideas and FW14 has become a masterpiece in terms of aerodynamics and technical superiority. The car featured semi-automatic transmission, active suspension, traction control and, for a brief period, anti-lock brakes. In 1991 team’s number 1 Nigel Mansell was runner-up in the championship, winning 4 races of the season. Riccardo Patrese added two more wins and was in third place in the overall standings. But the real triumph of the car took place the next year when Mansell won 9 races and the Champшon title driving slightly modified FW14B specification of the car. The FW14B was so successful that its successor (the FW15), which was available mid-season in 1992, was never used.
