Exploring an F1 icon: Giorgio Piola on the Williams FW14B

One of Formula 1’s most successful cars, the Williams FW14B, was by far the most advanced car of its time, which allowed Nigel Mansell to dominate the 1992 season.

Featuring sophisticated electronics and driver aids such as active suspension and traction control, the Renault-powered FW14B won 10 of the 16 races in ’92, and took pole in all but one race that year.
