Williams FW07C Cosworth
The Williams FW07C was a reaction of changed regulations as the governing body decided to ban moveable skirts in an attempt to slow the cars through corners.
Williams had started the 1981 season with the Williams FW07B and immediately scored a win as Reutemann won the opening round at Kyalami, South Africa. The changes to the regulations however required a design change, leading to the introduction of the FW07C with fixed skirts.
At its introduction, Alan Jones won at Long Beach, followed by another win by Reutemann at the Brazilian GP. After those two wins though, the car dropped in the pecking order as Williams were focusing most of their resources trying to get active suspension working on the car. The idea was to make sure the fixed skirts were always as close to the ground as possible.
When the team eventually got the car sorted, its drivers secured another 4 race wins and also the constructor's title.
