Variando um pouco, um Fórmula 1 em escala que não a 1/20, Williams FW23 na escala 1/24, kit da Revell. Having already exceeded their expectations in 2000, the BMW Williams F1 Team was well placed to improve on their 36 points and third place in the FIA Constructors Championship. With BMW absent from the Formula 1 scene for thirteen years, fifth place would have been a realistic position. However, with the help of the sound, reliable V-10 cylinder engine by BMW and the vastly experienced Willians F1 Team, the partnership was destined for greater things. The strong pairing of Ralf Schumacher and Jenson Button complimented the team superbly. Ralf, in his second year with the team was the stronger of the tro drivers, finishing third in the Drivers Championship and achieved a total of 24 points. For the 2001 season, Team Principal Sir Frank Willians and BMW Motorsport Director Gerhard Berger again intended to defend and build on the third place. However, the BMW Willians F1 Team was starting the season with a new engine, a new gearbox and a new driver, which is always a risk. The new engine achieving 820 bhp at 178000 rpm was designed to be lighter, smaller, more poweful and higher revving so if it were durable as well, the performance would be espetacular. It took Just four races for the potencial of this super quick engine to be realised when Ralf took his and the team’s maiden victory at the Imola Grand Prix in San Marino. Two more victories followed, in Montreal and Hockenheim, increasing the confidence of the man from Kerpen contributing 49 points to the equally impressive with his first victory in F1 after arriving from Champ Cars at the Italian Grand Prix. These four wins, together with a number of second places, gave the BMW Willians F1 Team 80 points, but once again third place in the 2001 FIA Constructor Championship. With the Prospect of an even lighter, more powerful car due to 2002, conbined with the fact both drivers Will be desperate to experience to joy of winning again, the third year of the Willians F1 and BMW relationship Will surely be one to remember.Revell kit at 1/24th scale.
