Throughout their Formula 1 careers, Boutsen prides itself with 3 wins and 15 podiums while Patrese claims 6 wins and 37 podium finishes. From the racing machine’s point of view, the Williams FW13 series participated in 20 Grand Prix events, won 3 races and claimed 1 pole and 4 fastest laps. Curious about the oily bits of this blast from the past?
Compared to the FW12’s Judd V8 engine, the FW13 got a 67-degree V10 engine, a 3.5-liter Renault tower-of-power. The B in FW13B comes from B-specification and roughly translates to a more powerful engine than the one in the FW13, better aerodynamics and uprated rear suspension. Raced four times in the 1990 season, chassis FW13B-07 features an attractive design thanks to the lowline nose, flattened oval engine airbox intake and small sidepods.
Other highlight features include a Williams/Hewland six-speed manual transmission (yes, stick shift), a double wishbone-type suspension system with pushrods at the front. If you want this moulded carbon/Kevlar composite racer, please note that this lot is subjected to VAT at 5% (6,000 pounds).
