WilliamsFW14B-Renault (revisited)

A quiet airfield in Northampton, England, a young Finnish star named Valtteri Bottas – and the 1992 WilliamsFW14B-Renault: September mornings are made of this…

It’s a massive RenaultSport weekend at le Circuit Paul Ricard this weekend. World Series by Renault 3.5 tops the bill, but watch out, too, for the Eurocup 2.0 races. Alain Prost, Romain Grosjean, Jean-Eric Vergne and Jerome d’Ambrosio will be also be on hand – as will the FW14B (above) a Renault RE40 and a Lotus 98T-Renault

    The sound is not good in the first 3 minutes.

    But who cares. I LOVE THIS CAR!!!!

  2. Peter, I just loved those videos ! Such a great experience for Valtteri Bottas and so much memories from this incredible car (my all-time favorite because of a certain red #5). Hey, Bottas looks relax and enjoyed the moment. That was pretty cool.

  3. Great build quality! 20 years old, amazing. Loved the ’92 season, even though I watched it only on TV as a kid. V10 engines were great too.

    Fascinating pair of videos, thank you Peter

  5. Thanks. I’ve re-mastered the audio as best I can – hopefully it’s better now.

    Thank you so much for those amazing videos Peter. I could not have asked for a better way to get a feel of the 14B sitting 1000 miles away. Thank you so much making it possible.

    Also couldnt help but notice the clean bodywork of the car. So aerodynamically neat, no winglets or flaps and a simple 2 element front wing. Just about personifies everything beautiful in an F1 car.

    Bottas’ smile says it all.

  9. Exactly right. As I say, the FW14B is one of the greatest F1 cars of all time. In every respect.

  10. Active suspension Still protected from photograhs ?

    Thanks for the job
    This car was fantastic

  11. Not at the rear, as you can see; at the front, the cover is actually attached to the scuttle!

    Wow this brought back some memories,mostly good,great to see some familiar faces,don’t think Bob has changed very much and the car had the right number on it!
    All the best

  13. Hi Westy – I was only asking after you yesterday, when I was chatting with Watty again up at the factory. Hope all’s well mate. BTW: Watty and Bob have a lot of work on their hands right now, prepping an 08, a 33 and a 19 for runs next week. The 33 uses a Cosworth, of course, so it’s not easy getting everyone to focus on the task! All best, PW
