Jones's first race for the team was the Argentine Grand Prix where he qualified the lone Williams car in 14th position, but retired after 36 laps with a fuel system failure.

The team scored its first championship points two rounds later at the South African Grand Prix when Jones finished fourth. Williams managed their first podium position at the United States Grand Prix , where the Australian came second, some 20 seconds behind the Ferrari of future Williams driver Carlos Reutemann.

Head designed the FW07 for the season with Frank Dernie picking up the aerodynamic development and skirt design. This was the team's first ground effect car, a technology first introduced by Colin Chapman and Team Lotus.

Regazzoni came close to taking the team's first win but finished second, less than a second behind race winner Jody Scheckter.

Greater successes followed when Williams cars finished first and second at the next round in Hockenheim , Alan Jones two seconds ahead of Regazzoni.

Jones then made it three wins in a row at the Österreichring , finishing half a minute ahead of Gilles Villeneuve's Ferrari.

Three wins in a row became four wins two weeks later at Zandvoort , Alan Jones winning again by a comfortable margin over Jody Scheckter 's Ferrari.

Scheckter ended the Williams winning streak when he won Ferrari's home Italian Grand Prix , Regazzoni finishing third behind both Ferraris. Alan Jones managed another win at the penultimate race at Montreal to cap off a great season.

Williams had greatly improved their Constructors' Championship position, finishing eight places higher than the previous year and scoring 59 more points.

Alan Jones was the closest driver to the Ferrari duo of Villeneuve and champion Jody Scheckter; Jones scored 43 points, 17 behind Scheckter, while Jones's teammate, Regazzoni, was two places behind him with 32 points.

The team started well in the championship, with Jones winning the first round of the season in Argentina. Jones won four more races: Jones became the first of seven Williams drivers to win the Drivers' Championship, 17 points ahead of Nelson Piquet 's Brabham.

Williams also won its first Constructors' Championship, scoring points, almost twice as many as second-placed Ligier.

The duo won four races for the Williams team in the season. Williams won the Constructors' title for the second year running, scoring 95 points, 34 points more than second-placed Brabham.

Alan Jones retired from Formula One though he would come back a year later for a single race with the Arrows team.

The Australian was replaced by Finnish driver, Keke Rosberg , who had not scored a single championship point the previous year.

Rosberg's teammate, Reutemann , finished in 15th place having quit Formula One after just two races of the new season.

The Williams team finished fourth in the Constructors' Championship that year, 16 points behind first-place Ferrari.

By the end of the season, Frank Williams realised that to compete at the top levels of Formula One he needed the support of a major manufacturer, such as Renault or BMW who could supply his team with a turbocharged engine.

Frank Williams looked towards Honda, which was developing its own turbocharged V6 engine with the Spirit team.

A deal between Honda and Williams was finally settled early in and the team used the engines for the season. Until then, for the season, Williams continued to use the Ford engine except for the last race of the year in South Africa where Keke Rosberg scored an encouraging fifth place.

The team finished fourth in the Constructors' Championship, scoring 36 points, including a win for Rosberg at the Monaco Grand Prix.

For the season, Head designed the ungainly FW Rosberg's teammate, Jacques Laffite , came 14th in the Drivers' Championship with five points.

The team finished sixth with In , Head designed the FW10 , the team's first chassis to employ the carbon-fibre composite technology pioneered by the McLaren team.

British driver Nigel Mansell joined the team to partner Rosberg. Williams finished third in the Constructors' Championship, scoring 71 points.

From until the end of the season, Williams cars ran with the yellow, blue and white Canon livery. In March , Frank Williams faced the most serious challenge of his life.

While returning to the airport at Nice , France, after pre-season testing at Paul Ricard , he was involved in a road accident which left him paralysed.

He did not return to the pit lane for almost a year. This left Alain Prost to defend his title successfully, despite being in an inferior car.

The season brought the Williams-Honda partnership its first and only Drivers' Championship title in the hands of Nelson Piquet. His teammate Mansell was in second place with six victories and 61 points for the season.

The Williams team won the Constructors' Championship for the second year running, scoring points, 61 points ahead of their nearest rivals, McLaren.

Despite this success, Honda ended their partnership with Williams at the end of the year in favour of McLaren and continuing with Lotus. Unable to make a deal with another major engine manufacturer, Williams used naturally aspirated Judd engines for the season.

Piquet left Williams to join Lotus who had retained their Honda engines for the season, helped by having Satoru Nakajima as number 2 driver to Piquet.

Williams brought in Italian Riccardo Patrese to replace Piquet. The team did not win a race that season and finished seventh in the Constructors' Championship, scoring 20 points.

The highlights of the season were two second-places by Mansell, at the British and Spanish Grands Prix. When Mansell was forced to miss two races due to illness, he was replaced by Martin Brundle and then Jean-Louis Schlesser.

The team secured an engine supply from Renault in Renault engines subsequently powered Williams drivers to another four Drivers' and five Constructors' Championships up until Renault's departure from Formula One at the end of The combination of Renault's powerful engine and Adrian Newey 's design expertise led to a particularly dominant period in the mids.

Mansell had a record-breaking season, winning the title in record time and leading many races from pole to finish.

Boutsen replaced Mansell, who had signed on to be Gerhard Berger 's teammate at Ferrari. The engine's first Grand Prix in Brazil was one that the team preferred to forget: Boutsen retired with an engine failure and Patrese with an alternator failure after leading, although Patrese did qualify second.

The Williams Renault team managed to get back on track with Boutsen coming fourth in the next race at Imola , earning the team three points in their championship campaign.

Two races later at the Mexican Grand Prix , the team managed to achieve their first podium with the Renault engine, as Patrese finished second, 15 seconds behind Ayrton Senna.

The next race saw Patrese finish second again, having started from 14th on the grid, with Boutsen 6th. At the sixth round in Montreal , Williams not only scored their first win with the Renault engine but also their first one-two: Thierry Boutsen came first followed by Patrese, resulting in 15 points for Williams's championship campaign.

Williams came second in the Constructors' Championship, scoring 77 points in total; 64 points behind McLaren.

Patrese finished 3rd in the Drivers' Championship with 40 points, 41 points behind the world champion, Alain Prost. Boutsen finished 5th in the championship with 37 points after also winning in Australia.

Boutsen's win in Australia gave Williams the distinction of having won the first and last Grands Prix of the s. In the season, Williams kept Patrese and Boutsen as the team's drivers.

Although Patrese won the San Marino Grand Prix and Boutsen won pole position and the race at the Hungarian Grand Prix , the team scored 20 fewer points than the previous year and finished the Constructors' Championship two positions lower, in fourth.

In the Drivers' Championship, Boutsen finished sixth with 34 points and Patrese seventh with 23 points. Boutsen left Williams and joined Ligier at the start of the season.

His replacement was a returning Nigel Mansell , who had spent the previous two seasons driving for Scuderia Ferrari.

Williams also recruited future world champion, Damon Hill , as one of their new test drivers. Williams failed to finish in the first Grand Prix of the season at Phoenix , both drivers retiring with gearbox problems.

The San Marino Grand Prix saw both cars retiring again: Mansell after a collision and Patrese with an electrical failure after 17 laps. The Grand Prix at Monaco saw Mansell finish in a points-scoring position, coming second, 18 seconds behind Ayrton Senna.

At the next race, the Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal, Williams locked out the front row only for Patrese to drop back with gearbox problems and Mansell to retire from the lead on the final lap with an electrical fault.

At the following race, in Mexico , Williams achieved a 1—2, Patrese finishing ahead of Mansell to score 16 points for the Williams team.

Mansell then won again at the British Grand Prix ; it had been four years since a Briton had won the Grand Prix, Mansell having won it in Three consecutive victories became four when Mansell won again in Germany , with Patrese about 10 seconds behind him in second place.

Senna ended Williams's run of victories by winning in Hungary , finishing five seconds ahead of Mansell. Mansell later won the Italian Grand Prix and the Spanish Grand Prix , while Patrese won the Portuguese Grand Prix after Mansell's race was ruined by a botched pitstop in which only three wheel nuts were fitted.

Williams finished second in the Constructors' Championship, scoring points in total, 14 points behind McLaren. Mansell finished second in the Drivers' Championship with 72 points, 24 points behind Senna.

Williams took a step up for the season, keeping their driver line-up of Patrese and Mansell. Mansell dominated the first round in South Africa , qualifying in pole position and winning the race by 24 seconds from his teammate, Patrese.

Mansell's five victories in the opening five races was a new record in Formula One. Senna won the next race in Monaco , ahead of both Williams cars, which finished second and third.

In the next race, in Canada , both Williams cars retired: Mansell spun off on entering the final corner he claimed that Senna pushed him off and Patrese had a gearbox failure.

In the final round, in Adelaide , the two Williams cars again retired, Mansell after Senna violently crashed into the back of him, and Patrese with electrical problems.

Williams won the Constructors' Championship with points, 65 points more than second place McLaren. Mansell became World Champion, scoring points, with Patrese finishing second with 56 points.

Placing first in nine races, Mansell had set a new record for the most wins by a single driver in one season.

Despite capturing the title and nine races, Nigel Mansell 's seat was not safe for as Williams looked to sign either Alain Prost , who had taken off after he was fired by Ferrari, or Ayrton Senna , whose contract with McLaren was expiring.

Patrese's position also looked to be under threat and he signed for Benetton before the end of the year. Ironically, Patrese could have remained at Williams; Prost was able to agree terms with Williams for and Mansell departed for CART rather than be teammates with Prost as they did not have a good relationship from their time together at Ferrari.

Prost, in turn, did not wish to drive with his former teammate Ayrton Senna, due to their rivalry and thus negotiated a veto clause into his contract to freeze Senna out and keep him at McLaren.

Test driver Damon Hill was promoted to join Prost in place of the departed Patrese. The Williams FW15C was an extremely dominant car, with active suspension and traction control systems beyond anything available to the other teams.

The next Grand Prix in Brazil saw Prost collide with Christian Fittipaldi's Minardi in the rain on lap 29, while Hill went on to his first podium finish: Prost won three of the next four Grands Prix for Williams, Senna winning the other race.

Prost and Hill later scored a 1—2 in France: Prost won the next two Grands Prix at Silverstone and Hockenheim. Hill proved competitive especially in the second half of the season.

Mechanical problems cost Hill leads in Britain and Germany, but he went on to win the next three Grands Prix at Hungary , Belgium and Italy which moved him to second in the standings, as well as giving him a chance of taking the Drivers' title.

After Italy, Williams would not win a Grand Prix for the rest of the season, as a young Michael Schumacher won the following race in Portugal , and Senna took Japan and Australia to overtake Hill in the points.

Williams retained their Constructors' title, 84 points ahead of second-placed McLaren. Prost clinched the Drivers' Championship in Portugal and finished the season 26 points ahead of second-placed Senna.

During the season, Williams used FW16 developed during the pre-season and FW16B with shorter sidepods and optimised for the revised floor regulations which were introduced during the season.

After Canon left the team Williams signed a contract with tobacco company Rothmans International for , and their namesake brand became its primary sponsor from to As the provision in Alain Prost's contract regarding his former teammate-turned-rival had expired following the season, Williams pursued and signed Ayrton Senna to a contract for while Prost elected to retire from competition.

Given this was the same team that had won the previous two World Championships with vastly superior cars, Senna was a natural and presumptive pre-season title favourite, with second-year driver Damon Hill intended to play the supporting role.

Between them, Prost, Senna and Hill had won every race in but one, which was taken by Benetton's Michael Schumacher.

Pre-season testing showed the FW16 had speed but was difficult to drive. It was these technological advancements that the Williams chassis of the previous years had been built around.

With their removal in , Williams had not been a good-handling car, as observed by other F1 drivers, having been seen to be very loose at the rear.

Senna himself had made numerous comments that the Williams FW16 had quirks which needed to be ironed out.

It was obvious that the FW16, after the regulation changes banning active suspension and traction control, exhibited none of the superiority of the FW15C and Williams FW14 B cars that had preceded it.

The surprise of testing was Benetton - Ford which was less powerful but more nimble than the Williams. The first four rounds were won by Michael Schumacher in the Benetton - Ford.

Senna took pole in the first two races but failed to finish either of them. In the third race, the San Marino Grand Prix in Imola, Senna again took pole position, but was involved in a fatal crash at the first corner after completing six laps.

Since Senna's death, every Williams F1 car has carried a Senna 's' on its livery in his honour and to symbolise the team's ongoing support of the Instituto Ayrton Senna.

Hill took the team's first victory of the season, by almost half a minute over Schumacher's Benetton , while Coulthard would retire due to an electrical problem.

In Montreal , both Williams cars finished in the points for the first time that season, with Hill finishing second and Coulthard finishing fifth.

In France, Nigel Mansell replaced Coulthard in the first of four appearances , at the behest of Renault.

Hill closed the points gap with Schumacher, who was disqualified from first at Spa after the Stewards found floorboard irregularities on his Benetton.

He was banned for the next two races, and Hill capitalised on this with wins in Italy and a Williams 1—2 in Portugal.

With three races left, champion Nigel Mansell returned from CART where the season had concluded to replace Coulthard for the remainder of the season.

Schumacher came back after his suspension for the European Grand Prix , which he won by about 25 seconds, to take a lead of 5 points into the penultimate round in Japan.

The race in Japan was held in torrential rain, with Hill managing to win the restarted race, by three seconds on aggregate over Schumacher who finished second.

Going into the final round at Adelaide , Schumacher led Hill by a single point. Mansell took pole for Williams, but had a poor start which let Hill and Schumacher through to fight for the lead and the title.

Midway through the race, Schumacher's perceived need for a low downforce setup cost him, as he lost control and clipped the outside wall at the 5th corner out of sight of Hill.

As Schumacher recovered, Hill came around the corner and attempted to overtake into the next corner. Schumacher turned in and the resulting contact Schumacher in the wall and Hill retiring with bent suspension , meant Schumacher was the champion.

This collision has been controversial. Some, such as Williams's Patrick Head , have suggested that this was a deliberate attempt by Schumacher to take Hill out of the race.

Meanwhile, Nigel Mansell won the last Grand Prix of his career here, driving the second Williams car. Williams would end the season as Constructors' Champion for the third consecutive year, scoring points, while Hill finished second in the Drivers' Championship with 91 points.

Schumacher , whose Benetton team had switched engine suppliers from Ford to Renault in the off-season, won the first round in Brazil , with Coulthard taking second.

However, both were disqualified from the race after it was found that Elf supplied their teams with a type of fuel for which samples had not been provided to the FIA.

Thus, Gerhard Berger and Ferrari were declared winners. Schumacher and Coulthard had their positions reinstated after appeal, though Benetton and Williams were not awarded their Constructors' points.

Hill won two laps ahead of the field at Adelaide in one of F1's most dominating victories. Coulthard recorded his only win for the Williams team at Estoril , before moving to McLaren.

Williams's champion streak was ended by Benetton , who elected to switch engine suppliers from Ford to Renault, the same as Williams.

As such, Benetton outscored Williams by 29 points in the Constructors' Championship. It kept the dashboard of the pre-facelift version, but with new gauges and optional color matching inserts.

The sedan version of the Clio was facelifted in , with new exterior similar to the facelifted Clio, better equipment and safety levels.

In the fall of , an improved Clio sedan has been offered, renamed in Eastern Europe as Renault Symbol.

This model featured the interior of the facelifted Clio II with very minor parts commonality with Megane II , as well as new standard and optional equipment, such as automatic air conditioning and a CD player.

The model earned moderate reception in the domestic market. The new model features chrome-trimmed front grille and rear fascia, while powered by similar engines as the Dacia Logan range.

In April , the UK BBC consumer affairs programme Watchdog aired details of over 1, incidents involving Clio IIs in which the bonnet flew open without warning while still being driven, usually at high speeds, and sometimes writing the cars off.

The problem was found to be caused by the catch not being cleaned and lubricated during servicing causing it to stick in the open position.

Renault investigated the issue with the aid of the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency VOSA and a "task force" of Renault departments to test the design but found no problem with the bonnet catch and so would not issue a recall.

Renault instead wrote to owners of the model and offered to "remedy for free any catches where there has been poor maintenance".

Watchdog has since claimed other experts have contacted them with accusations that Renault was expecting people to maintain a flawed part that would corrode over time and could cost lives.

Renault was accused by its Press Relations Manager Graeme Holt, who quit in protest, of downplaying the serious "fault" and putting customers' lives in danger.

The third generation Clio was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show. This was the result of a decision to move the Clio upmarket. The new Clio achieved a 5-star EuroNCAP safety rating, joining the rest of Renault's family at the maximum safety rating with the exception of the Kangoo and the Twingo.

Sales began throughout Europe in October It was voted European Car of the Year , becoming the first car to win twice, defeating the rival Volkswagen Passat by just 5 points.

The Clio was described by several people as the new benchmark for its category and by one judge as a "great little car that should inspire bigger ones".

The trophy for the award was presented in January to the Renault chief executive at a ceremony in Italy organized by Auto Magazine.

The Clio Renault Sport is equipped with a new naturally aspirated valve 2. An estate version called Sport Tourer was unveiled in March At the same time, Renault replaced the 1.

In the 2nd, 3rd and 4th gears over rpm the turbocharger adds 5 extra HP. It features better quality materials used in the interior and is better equipped than the pre-facelift model.

The Clio GT has a new aggressive front end styling incorporating a black grille, extended side sills, suspension settings unique to the 'RS variant, and a twin tailpipe design with a lip spoiler on the rear end.

The Clio Gordini is equipped with a 2. However, the limited edition is priced as low as the usual version. The range was reduced in late , due to the launch of the Clio IV.

However, in France and Spain it remained in the range as the Clio Collection and was in production until It is available in hatchback body style and starting from early also as an estate.

The Clio IV is only available with five doors, with "hidden" rear door handles near the windows. Another notable difference from the previous generation is the wheelbase, which has been significantly extended and is now near to the one of a compact car.

The length and the width have also been increased, but less significantly. The range of petrol engines consists of three options: The diesel range has two versions of the 1.

The Clio has been facelifted with a new badge and new head lights and a new estate was launched. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

In , Renault launched the Clio Williams as a limited edition of 3, cars 1, more than they needed for homologation purposes with each car bearing a numbered plaque on the dash.

These sold out so quickly that Renault ended up building 1, more. After the first series, due to the demand, Renault built the Williams 2 and 3, with more than 12, eventually being built.

However, many new road cars were directly converted to race cars and when damaged replaced with another converted road car, which means that the actual number of road cars is significantly lower than the figures suggest.

The car was named after the then Renault-powered Formula One team WilliamsF1 , though Williams had nothing to do with the design or engineering of this Clio.

The modifications to the Clio 16S on which it was based were the work of Renault Sport , Renault's motorsport division.

Nevertheless, this car had a Formula One link by being the sport's Safety Car in Renault later released the Williams 2 and Williams 3 special editions, much to the chagrin of those owners who had been assured of the exclusivity of the "original" Williams.

Production from to the end of was approximately vehicles of which were sold in the UK. In , Phase 3 followed starting on a 53 Plate, this was just some small changes to bring it up to date.

The front bumper was changed giving it a wide lower grille and the foglights were bulged out at the side cars not equipped with foglights remained using the older ph2 bumper , the upper grille was changed and the headlights which previously had black background now had grey.

The 15" alloy wheels were changed and were now a 15" version of the facelift model on Dynamique and Extreme models.

Clear side repeaters were added, as was a colourcoded rear spoiler again on Dynamique spec cars. In the South American market, the facelifted Clio continued to use the dashboard of the model and was never updated, except for the Colombian model that included the same interior of the European version with little changes, and continued having the same exterior as the phase II model.

On the inside the pattern on the seats was changed for a simpler one, and the dials were changed to do away with the fuel and water temperature needles and now featured a larger screen that included a digital version of these gauges as well as the mileage and trip computer.

Climate control equipped cars were given a vent in the back of the glove box so it could be climate controlled.

Rear disks were fitted on 1. For the first time there were two options in chassis stiffness for the RS model.

The Phase 4 Clio II, known as the Clio Campus, was introduced in and had a restyled rear end, the number plate moving from boot to bumper, and a better specification on all models.

The last units of the Clio II built in Mexico featured the headlights used on the Nissan Platina, [ citation needed ] thus becoming the third headlight design to be used in the car.

This version lasted a month January on sale, before both Clio and Platina being replaced by the Dacia Logan and Sandero. It kept the dashboard of the pre-facelift version, but with new gauges and optional color matching inserts.

The sedan version of the Clio was facelifted in , with new exterior similar to the facelifted Clio, better equipment and safety levels.

In the fall of , an improved Clio sedan has been offered, renamed in Eastern Europe as Renault Symbol. This model featured the interior of the facelifted Clio II with very minor parts commonality with Megane II , as well as new standard and optional equipment, such as automatic air conditioning and a CD player.

The model earned moderate reception in the domestic market. The new model features chrome-trimmed front grille and rear fascia, while powered by similar engines as the Dacia Logan range.

In April , the UK BBC consumer affairs programme Watchdog aired details of over 1, incidents involving Clio IIs in which the bonnet flew open without warning while still being driven, usually at high speeds, and sometimes writing the cars off.

The problem was found to be caused by the catch not being cleaned and lubricated during servicing causing it to stick in the open position.

Renault investigated the issue with the aid of the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency VOSA and a "task force" of Renault departments to test the design but found no problem with the bonnet catch and so would not issue a recall.

Renault instead wrote to owners of the model and offered to "remedy for free any catches where there has been poor maintenance". Watchdog has since claimed other experts have contacted them with accusations that Renault was expecting people to maintain a flawed part that would corrode over time and could cost lives.

Renault was accused by its Press Relations Manager Graeme Holt, who quit in protest, of downplaying the serious "fault" and putting customers' lives in danger.

The third generation Clio was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show. This was the result of a decision to move the Clio upmarket. The new Clio achieved a 5-star EuroNCAP safety rating, joining the rest of Renault's family at the maximum safety rating with the exception of the Kangoo and the Twingo.

Sales began throughout Europe in October It was voted European Car of the Year , becoming the first car to win twice, defeating the rival Volkswagen Passat by just 5 points.

The Clio was described by several people as the new benchmark for its category and by one judge as a "great little car that should inspire bigger ones".

The trophy for the award was presented in January to the Renault chief executive at a ceremony in Italy organized by Auto Magazine.

The Clio Renault Sport is equipped with a new naturally aspirated valve 2. An estate version called Sport Tourer was unveiled in March At the same time, Renault replaced the 1.

In the 2nd, 3rd and 4th gears over rpm the turbocharger adds 5 extra HP. It features better quality materials used in the interior and is better equipped than the pre-facelift model.

The Clio GT has a new aggressive front end styling incorporating a black grille, extended side sills, suspension settings unique to the 'RS variant, and a twin tailpipe design with a lip spoiler on the rear end.

The Clio Gordini is equipped with a 2. However, the limited edition is priced as low as the usual version. The range was reduced in late , due to the launch of the Clio IV.

However, in France and Spain it remained in the range as the Clio Collection and was in production until It is available in hatchback body style and starting from early also as an estate.

The Clio IV is only available with five doors, with "hidden" rear door handles near the windows.

Another notable difference from the previous generation is the wheelbase, which has been significantly extended and is now near to the one of a compact car.

This result left Villeneuve equal top of the championship with Coulthard and Williams equal second with Benetton and behind McLaren.

An early safety car was triggered in Argentina due to the collision between Coulthard and Ferrari's Michael Schumacher. This was good for the Williams team, who had started , with Villeneuve on pole for the third consecutive time.

It didn't last very long for Frentzen, though, as his clutch broke after only five laps, meaning he had still scored no points for the season.

Villeneuve was able to hold on to the lead for the vast majority of the race, with only five laps during the pitstops led by the Ferrari of Eddie Irvine.

The Canadian's second win of the season left him and the team clear at the top of the championship table, despite Frentzen being yet to score.

Frentzen was jumped by Michael Schumacher at the start, and the Williams cars ran 1st and 3rd until the first round of pitstops, when Villeneuve was already suffering from gearbox problems.

Frentzen jumped his compatriot Schumacher and took the lead while Villeneuve dropped to 3rd with his problems. He finally retired on lap Frentzen was under pressure from Schumacher to the very end, but held on to take his first ever F1 victory.

Villeneuve held on to his championship lead, as did the team, and Frentzen moved up to equal third — he, Gerhard Berger of Benetton, Mika Häkkinen of McLaren, Irvine and Coulthard all had 10 points.

Frentzen took his first career pole at the Monaco Grand Prix , but Villeneuve was back in third with Michael Schumacher splitting them.

The Ferrari man jumped Frentzen at the very wet start and the Jordans of Fisichella and Ralf Schumacher also got through. Villeneuve had an awful start and was down to 9th, behind Coulthard, Herbert, Barrichello and Olivier Panis 's Prost as well.

Frentzen had a spin and Villeneuve had technical problems, and they were soon running 16th and 17th. As the rain continued to fall, they picked up places due to the accidents of Herbert and Jarno Trulli in the Minardi , Berger having to stop for a new front wing and actually passing Shinji Nakano 's Prost on the racetrack.

This left them in 11th and 12th with Frentzen still leading his teammate, but on lap 17 Villeneuve pulled into the pits with a problem, later identified as accident damage after a brush with the barrier, and retired.

Frentzen picked up a place on the same lap due to Jean Alesi spinning his Benetton out of the race. The German passed Ukyo Katayama in the other Minardi a lap later, and was in 9th.

He was still in 9th on lap 40 when he ran wide at the seafront chicane and bounced across the kerbs, damaging his right front suspension.

He then hit the wall on the other side of the track, which caused almost identical damage to the left front suspension. He was out of the race, and the Williams Monaco challenge was over.

Michael Schumacher's victory left him top of the championship by four points from Villeneuve. Frentzen had been demoted to fourth due to Eddie Irvine's 3rd place, and Williams had been bumped down to 2nd by the Ferrari performance.

The Williams cars were back on the front row in Spain , with Villeneuve on pole again. Villeneuve held position at the start despite intense pressure from Coulthard and Michael Schumacher.

Frentzen, however, dropped down to 6th as the McLaren and the Ferrari swept passed him along with Alesi and Häkkinen. Frentzen had run as high as third, but by the time the second pitstops were over he was down to 8th - Herbert and Panis had got passed him as well.

At the end Villeneuve was able to hold onto the lead only because Olivier Panis, an unlikely challenger, was caught in the traffic of Eddie Irvine and Jos Verstappen 's Tyrrell.

Frentzen was not much help to the Canadian, only moving up to 8th with a last lap move on Fisichella. This result allowed Villeneuve to move back to the lead of the championship, but meanwhile Frentzen was slipping, from 4th to 6th as Panis and Coulthard overtook him.
