The Williams FW27 (unofficially known as BMW Williams FW27 and BMW FW27) was the Formula One car which the Williams team used during the 2005 season.

Racing HistoryEdit

2005Edit

While Williams was able to compete and take a couple of victories home in recent years, the FW27 proved not to be up to the same performance levels as some of the other teams' cars. New drivers Mark Webber and Nick Heidfeld scored points quite frequently, but a Grand Prix win was not within their reach. The highlight was the second and third places in Monaco. Heidfeld also scored a second place at the European race, where he started from pole. From the Italian Grand Prix on, Antônio Pizzonia replaced Heidfeld who previously teammates with Webber in 2003 with Jaguar, who was injured. The team ended the season in fifth place in the constructors' championship, failing to meet the high expectations the team had.

This car was the last Williams model that was powered by a BMW engine before BMW moved to BMW Sauber and also Michelin tires before they are switch to Bridgestone tires. The following year's model, the Williams FW28 had an engine provided by Cosworth.
