By 1993, Formula One had become very much a high-tech arena and the FW15C was at the very forefront, featuring active suspension, anti-lock brakes, traction control, telemetry, drive-by-wire controls, pneumatic engine valve springs, power steering, semi-automatic transmission, a fully-automatic transmission, and also a continuously variable transmission. But Just two weeks after testing the FIA banned Williams' car. Today on B2B we're gonna find out why.

    why not just add an auto pilot system incase the driver makes a mistake to? Drivers like Verstappen, Alonso, Hamilton ect ect are great to watch currently as its all their skill that makes the difference, compare Hamilton and Verstappen to their team-mates thats the differnece and thats what makes watching them amazing. If you add all this to cars again the difference between them and their team-mates would be alot closer who wants to see a car make up all that difference? I don't. Also part of the enjoyment is watching these drivers on the edge knowing any small mistake can take them out of the race at anytime, not watching a car save the day.

    This is so stupid. They should have started with just limiting the money for a team. If you just want drivers give them the same car. If you want both, dont limit the engineering. At least not that all new innovation is banned automatically. Maybe have it, that at the end of season all teams have to share their technical details. That way the technological progress is faster, driving gets more safe and you will not have an infinite streak of one team winning. There would be so many better ways to solve this problem...

    smh my head, it should be ILLEGAL to ban such genius. Rather than swinging the ban hammer at everything that could really be revolutionary for the car industry, try to revolutionize your own system, dear FIA, and implement some negative feedback mechanism that doesn't let strong teams get stronger without control.

    Listen to your common Sense. Williams denied sending Millions to specific Bank Accounts. All other Car manufacturers had because of Car sells way more Money in the Back - so they send Money and Bit.. and so they make the Rules with Campagne in there Hands on a Yacht in Saint Tropez. 40 Years ago this Sport follows the "Naturaly Roots Rule" where all Racing/running-sense come from *Survival of the Fittest/fastest*. F1 is Survival of the Wealthest.

    Williams should actually be thanking the FIA for banning cvts. While the concept is looks good on paper in practice it doesn't work that well (see any Nissan road car from the last decade). Main reason is it has one critical failure point the belt. If that fails you go from blasting down to the track to a dead stop with no drive train. With a traditional transmission if you lose a gear you still have a drive train. Yeah sure you have to skip shift but it's better then getting a dnf because the belt broke.

    Good question... If the car has traction control ABS stability control etc.... Sooo...... Whats the point of having a driver? Might as well have a self driving car.... They are killing the purpose of racing its not about who's the fastest with assist its about who's skilled Enough to reach the finish line in 1st in 1 piece instead of a square shape... Safety aside some stuff like traction control and other stuff are not supposed to be implemented in the higher class... Sure for beginners its best to have some assist so that they can have the feel for it.. but for an F1 driver you should be skilled Enough to handle the car qith no assist else your no different than a grandma in her hellcat.

    Couple of disappointing parts to this video. "What do Williams sell? Nothing"... How did your research not flag up Williams Grand Prix Holdings? Sure Williams Racing is the most well known element, but there is also Williams Hybrid Power LTD, and Williams Advanced Engineering LTD. These commercial wings of Williams are responsible for the development and production of significant technology used in the Automotive, Motorsports, Aerospace sectors, to name but a few. Williams don't sell consumer products like Mercedes, Ferrari, Red Bull etc. But the racing team fronts a number of commercial products. As examples, the battery systems for the Gen3 Formula E cars are to be supplied by WAE. The flywheel hybrid power store systems used by UK public transport operator Go-Ahead Group are developed and supplied by WHP. The other disappointment was the information about the CVT. CVT technology can be great. It is often misunderstood, and thanks to manufacturers of road cars originally recreating the gear change feel of a standard transmission in early CVTs, they got an unfair reputation for being clunky and unreliable. In the case of Williams F1 however, that CVT would never have seen race day track use. Whilst constant peak power is great for performance, it sucks for fuel economy and engine reliability. At a time where refueling was a significant strategy point, and engine reliability was mediocre at best, the CVT was not the solution Williams needed for their F1 cars. Neither Patrick Head, nor Adrian Newey liked the CVT. Renault would have had to completely redevelop the engine to enable it to cope with running at 15k for a full race, and it wasn't even clear they would have been able to do that. Williams would have had to find a way to deal with the amount of heat the CVT unit developed, and there was a significant issue with just how damn heavy the thing was. Williams were working with Hub van Doorne on that CVT. Van Doorne were well know for their CVT technology, Variomatic, which was used in their commercial vehicles arm, commonly known as DAF. That CVT was never really a practical option for F1 with the way the technology was at the time (and it really wouldn't be a practical option in modern F1 either). But it produced a huge amount of press coverage for Williams Racing, Hub van Doorne, and DAF. I doubt Frank would admit to it, but I wouldn't be surprised if he was involved in getting the FIA to introduce the 2 - 7 discrete gear ratio rule that effectively banned the CVT. That way, Williams would not have to explain why they never entered a CVT equipped car in a race.

    The reason for Williams' active suspension was to maintain a steady ride height. The cars developed much of their downforce by accelerating the air under the cars' floors as it exited at the rear of the cars. Active suspension allowed the cars to run extremely low which maximized the effect.

    I hate when people say they did it to make more entertaining you know what is entertaining people doing their best to create a fast car and then us getting to see said fast car make laps on a track. I don’t care how many times someone wins. It doesn’t make it less entertaining. If you can make a car better you should be able to if other teams can’t solve the issues that is their fault. Races for me have always been about the cars and the speed rather than that driver is maybe slightly better.
