Williams F1 to feature in Design Museum exhibition

An F1 car and hybrid power system produced by Williams will be a part of the 'Designed to Win' exhibition in London.
Williams F1 has seen two of its cutting edge technologies unveiled at London's Design Museum as part of the 'Designed to Win' exhibition.

A Williams F1 car and Williams Hybrid Power electromechanical flywheel feature in the exhibition that explores the various ways in which design has shaped the sporting world. 'Designed to Win' charts key moments where design has played a significant role in progressing sport from performance, safely and fashion to new materials and technology. It runs from 26 July until 18 November at the museum, which is situated near Tower Bridge.

The Williams car exhibit outlines to visitors the ten key design features of an F1 machine, explaining the technology involved in making each piece and the performance benefits they each bring. This includes car parts such as brakes, wheels, drag reduction systems (DRS) and front impact structures.

The Williams Hybrid Power flywheel on display is the same design that helped power Audi to victory at this year's Le Mans 24 Hours. The flywheel is located next to the history making Audi R18 e-tron quattro, demonstrating to visitors the way in which hybrid technology is gaining increasing traction in motorsport as well as other applications such as public transport.

"It was a real honour when the Design Museum approached us about including some of our technology in their 'Designed to Win' exhibition," Williams chief executive officer Alex Burns commented, "We constantly push the technological boundaries in a bid to gain a competitive edge and I am looking forward to sharing these two innovations with the public."

F1 rival McLaren is already on show in London, having had several of its products included in the Science Museum's 'Make it in Great Britain' exhibition, which is due to run throughout the duration of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
