Heritage Engineering
Williams Heritage Engineering is responsible for the operation, maintenance, restoration and preservation of the team's historic Formula One cars. The engineering team ensures that the iconic race cars from Williams' history are prepared to the highest standards and are ready for various events, exhibitions and driving experiences.
Here are some key aspects of Williams Heritage Engineering:
Technical Expertise: The technical team consists of experienced F1 engineers, designers and mechanics, most of whom had direct involvement with the design, build and running of the cars at race events in the day. They have an in-depth knowledge of the cars mechanical and electronic systems and operate to the high standards required by Williams heritage, at all levels of design, engineering, build and sign off.
Archive: We hold the technical archive for all Williams manufactured Formula 1 cars, including original car design concepts, manufacturing drawings, structural calculations, mechanical and aerodynamic design and analysis data. We also have race and test event data and original set-up sheets (green-sheets) to define and optimise mechanical and aero-dynamic set-up for each circuit.
Safety: our top priority is to make Williams F1 heritage cars as safe as possible. Therefore, we follow regular servicing cycles, including FIA F1 historic race regulation component life limits, to ensure that all structural and safety relevant parts are tested before we take cars to the track.
Maintenance and Restoration: Maintenance and restoration of Williams historic Formula One cars. This includes keeping the engines, chassis, and all components in working order.
Preservation: Williams Heritage Engineering is committed to preserving the authenticity and historical accuracy of each car. This involves using original parts, or where materials or components are no longer available, re-designing parts as closesly as possible to the original specifications, ensuring that these cars maintain their historical features.
Car Operation: Responsible for event technical planning, car specification, run plans, mechanical and aerodynamic set-up and data analysis, to ensure the car systems are signed off and function properly within the correct operating range for set-up, temperature and pressure etc.
Williams Heritage Engineering is a vital component of the Williams Heritage program, ensuring that the team's historic Formula One cars are not only preserved but also brought to life for fans, enthusiasts, and collectors to appreciate and enjoy through various events and driving experiences.
