Williams is one of the most iconic names in the motorsport world, having been founded by Sir Frank Williams and Patrick Head back in 1977. Debuting in Formula 1 later that year with an entry into the Spanish Grand Prix, the team became a constructor in its own right the following year and took a maiden victory in 1979 thanks to Clay Regazzoni.
Since then, Williams has gone on to win more than 100 Formula 1 races, with only Ferrari, McLaren and Mercedes having taken more victories in the sport. Alan Jones, Keke Rosberg, Nelson Piquet, Nigel Mansell, Alain Prost, Damon Hill and Jacques Villeneuve all won the Drivers’ title whilst with the Grove-based team, which also has also won the Constructors’ title on nine occassions.
Founded in 2015 and based close to Silverstone, Hitech GP is a top race team competing in FIA Formula 2, FIA Formula 3 and a raft of other championships – including GB3.

FIA Formula 3 Championship:
2019 marked the launch of the FIA Formula 3 Championship, an ambitious new project from the FIA and the former GP3 Series Organisation to form an official third rung of the ‘Road to F1’ ladder. Combining GP3 and European F3, the idea was to create a defined entry point for young and ambitious drivers to join the Formula 1 circus, and to give them the chance to take the path to join their heroes in the main paddock.
