This Williams car is an interim version of the FW28 in order for the team to prepare the 2007 season. After an obviously dissappointing 2006, Williams decided to opt for Toyota engines for 2007 and therefore built the FW28B. The car is similar to the Williams FW28 in all aspects except for being powered by Toyota's 2006 engine, the RVX-06.
During winter practice, the team also experimented with new front wings and other aerodynamic parts which helped the development of their new car FW29 car.
