About the WilliamsF1 BMW FW24
WilliamsF1 (formerly Williams Grand Prix Engineering) was founded in 1977 by Frank Williams and Patrick Head. After a challenge and success filled twenty-year period, the alliance with BMW in 2000 proved to be a formula for renewed and rapid success. With its characteristic aerodynamic devices and angular form the FW24 does not look so different from its predecessor, the FW23. However, the resemblance does not do justice to the extensive fine-tuning of insufficient mechanical grip and other solutions on previous weak points. Though retaining a 90-degree bank angle of the FW23 machine's BMW P80 engine, the BMW P82 engine of the FW24 has taken power to an all-new level. The new HP livery (reflecting a change in sponsorship) was seen from the 10th GP in England, and was also marked by structural improvements in aerodynamics. This latter version featured pontoon side surfaces that dramatically converged toward the rear wing. The rear and front wings also evolved to incorporate 3D surfaces for enhanced aerodynamics.

Axle shafts, brake discs and calipers come as separate parts and will give a striking feeling of realism to your diorama.
