The Williams FW11 was a Formula One car designed by Frank Dernie as a serious challenger to McLaren and their MP4/2C car. The car took over from where the FW10 left off at the end of 1985, when that car won the last three races of the season. The FW11's most notable feature was the Honda 1.5 Litre V6 turbo engine, one of the most powerful in F1 at the time producing 800 bhp at 12,000rpm and well over 1,200 bhp at 12,000 rpm in qualifying. Added to the engine's power were the aerodynamics, which were ahead of the MP4/2C and the Lotus 98T. That and its excellent driving pairing of Nelson Piquet and Nigel Mansell made it a force to be reckoned with. The car was an instantly recognisable product of the turbo era of F1.
The Williams FW16 competed in the 1994 Formula One season and was raced by British driver Damon Hill to finish runner-up in the 1994 World Drivers Championship. Unfortunately, it was also the car in which Ayrton Senna was killed during the third race of the 1994 season. The FW16 is our tribute to the greatest F1 driver of all time.

Few liveries in motorsport are so illustrious as Nigel Mansell's "Red Five" Williams-Renault FW14B, one of the most sophisticated cars ever to compete in F1 taking a record number of wins in the '92 season against legends Senna and Schumacher. 80% Combed Cotton, 17% Polyamide, 3% Elastane.We use seamless knitting to create a sock with no stitches.
