Williams FW28 - F1 2006 by EvanDeCiren Williams FW28 - F1 2006 by EvanDeCiren

The Williams FW28 was the car with which the Williams team competed in the 2006 Formula One season. It was driven by Mark Webber, who was in his second year with the team, and Nico Rosberg, who was the reigning GP2 Series champion. The combination of Williams, Cosworth and Rosberg carried a hint of nostalgia, as Nico's father Keke had won the 1982 title in a Cosworth-engined Williams.

However, 2006 was very disappointing for the illustrious team. The car was dogged by a handling problem which affected the cars on the entry to corners. Despite the effectiveness of the Cosworth engine, the Bridgestone tyres and the two drivers, the FW28 could only display brief flashes of promise. Too often this promise was compromised by poor reliability - an embarrassment for a team which prides itself on engineering excellence.

The car seemed competitive at the beginning of the year, when the cars scored a double points finish with Rosberg setting the fastest lap (on his F1 début) at Bahrain. An excellent second-row qualifying performance at Sepang was wasted when both cars suffered engine failures, and the season went downhill from there. Exceptions were Australia and Monaco, both races where Webber looked a contender for at least a podium finish until retiring on both occasions with engine failures.

The team eventually finished eighth in the Constructors' Championship, with 11 points.

Great job, too bad Williams couldn't deliver like they did when Juan Pablo was around. Also back in 1991-1997 when they dominated as well.

awesome image. One of the good points about this car is that it led on to the FW29 which was a beautiful machine and much improved.
