The Williams FW26 is a Formula One car build to compete in the 2004 Formula One world Championship. The FW26 was a brain child of Patrick Head, who was co-founder and Engineering Director at Williams F1. The car competed in the 2004 season with Ralf Schumacher and Juan Pablo Montoya behind the wheel. The FW26 was powered by a BMW 3 liter V10 engine. Many fans had tipped the car as a title favourite, but the car proved very inconsistent, eventually finishing fourth in the constructor’s Championship.
