Williams is among the most successful Formula One teams in history. Since Frank Williams founded Williams Grand Prix Engineering in 1977, the team has won nine FIA Formula One World Driving Championships with Alan Jones, Keke Rosberg, Nelson Piquet, Nigel Mansell, Alain Prost, Damon Hill and Jacques Villeneuve, together with nine Constructors Championships in partnership with Cosworth, Honda and Renault. The Williams-Toyota FW31 is based on a carbon-aramid and honeycomb composite monocoque. The front suspension features carbon fiber, double wishbones with pushrod activated springs and zero keel geometry. Similarly, the rear suspension is a double wishbone, pushrod design. The car is powered by a naturally aspirated, longtitudinally mounted 2.4 liter, 90° V8 Toyota RVX-09 with revs limited to 18,000 RPM and estimated output of 740 horsepower. Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a Williams, seven-speed, electro-hydraulically actuated, semi-automatic, seamless shift transmission.
