Bring Back V10s: A classic tale of Williams angst + home heartbreak

1 min read

Frustration over team orders, rumbling intra-team discord, rows about future rules, sponsor spats, Ayrton Senna and Nigel Mansell (even though he wasn't even in Formula 1 at the time) throwing grenades in the background, a British hero leading the British Grand Prix - and then something heartbreaking happening.

Silverstone 1993 might not be the first race that comes to mind when you think of Williams's epic but often messy F1 heyday, but it featured so many of the themes that characterised this brilliant-yet-fraught team's years at the top.

The new season of Bring Back V10s begins with Karun Chandhok, Edd Straw and Glenn Freeman exploring Damon Hill vs Alain Prost and all that background, plus everything from Rubens Barrichello being rated as a future world champion to new (backmarker) teams finalising their plans and Johnny Herbert declaring Lotus had just transformed its fortunes.
