My Top Five F1 Cars, in no particular order. Number 4 – Williams FW15C

3 Jun

This car effectively ushered in the beginning of my conscious mind reacting to Formula 1. With McLaren having a rough year in 1993, this was THE car in that season, winning Prost his fourth and final Formula 1 championship and highlighting the potential of the young Damon Hill. It also persuaded Ayrton Senna to leave McLaren and, fatally, to join Williams in 1994 (well he’d have left McLaren earlier if Prost hadn’t had it in his contract that under no circumstances was Senna allowed to be his team-mate). The Williams team was also sponsored by Sega and the decal of the design, with the footwells and steering looking like Sonics the Hedgehog’s legs and hands, only sold me more. This blog is intended to be about subjectivity, and subjectively, you don’t get more important to me in F1 than the Williams FW15C.
