The Williams FW34 is a Formula One racing car designed by Williams F1 for the 2012 Formula One season. Following their worst season in their thirty-year history — in which they finished ninth in the World Constructors' Championship with just five points — the team underwent a technical review, employing former McLaren designer Mike Coughlan (having served his suspension for his role in the 2007 Formula One espionage controversy) as Chief Designer, and promoting Jason Somerville to Head of Aerodyamics. The FW34 will use the Renault RS27-2012 engine, having previously used Renault engines between 1989 and 1997. The car, which was launched on 7 February, will be driven by Pastor Maldonado and Bruno Senna.
