The Williams FW37 is a Formula One racing car designed by Williams Grand Prix Engineering which Williams Martini Racing used to compete in the 2015 Formula One season. It was driven by Valtteri Bottas and Felipe Massa. The car was launched on 1 February 2015.

History Edit

Williams were first in presenting their 2015 car, releasing a computer rendering on 21 January 2015. The peculiar 'anteater' nose design of the 2014 car was dropped in favour of a lower and shorter one. The Williams team retained theMartini alcohol brand as their main sponsor, thereby keeping the car in the traditional Martini Racing colours.  A reasonably competitive car that finished in the points at almost every race, it ultimately helped the team secure its second consecutive third-place finish with 257 points in the Constructors' Championship. However it proved to be a low-key achievement given the resurgence of Ferrari and the sheer dominance of the Mercedes team. The team struggled to achieve podiums, with just two each for both Massa and Bottas, let alone the wins they aimed at during the pre-season. The team proved arguably less competitive late in the season as they shifted development towards the 2016 car relatively early.
