Vettel's Williams

The four-time champion has acquired an FW14B with which the Grove men won 10 races, the constructors 'title and the drivers' title in 1992 with Nigel Mansell.


Sebastian Vettel is passionate about cars and motorcycles. He has an invaluable personal collection and recently added a new four-wheeled jewel. It is the Williams FW14B with which Nigel Mansell won the 1992 World Cup and the Grove team dominated the championship by also taking the constructors' title in an unforgettable season in which they signed ten victories, fifteen poles, twenty podiums and six doubles in 16 races between the aforementioned Briton and his partner Ricardo Patrese. In addition, the car is emblematic of its performance on the track due to its striking mix colors of blue, yellow and white, which are in the memory of Formula 1.4444 fans.

"The car is very iconic for me and, like me, it wears the number 5," Vettel told 'Bild'. What has not transpired is the price paid by the four-time Heppenheim champion, although 3 million euros were paid for one of his 'brothers', of the six in the world, in 2019. "It was a good car from the beginning with much geometric relevance of the Leyton House cars due to the presence of Adrian Newey. The main difference between the previous model from 1991 and the FW14B was the active suspension. And it had a big advantage because you could change gears four or five times more fast and the engine stalled when over-revving, "recalled Patrick Head, Williams' technical director that year, in 'Autosport'.
