Williams Racing is a British Formula One team and constructor founded by Frank Williams and Patrick Head in 1977. The team started racing with a March chassis for Patrick Nève in the 1977 Spanish Grand Prix. Williams started manufacturing its own cars in 1978, and Clay Regazzoni won the team’s first race at the 1979 British Grand Prix. Williams won nine Constructors’ Championships between 1980 and 1997, making them one of only four teams in Formula One, alongside Ferrari, McLaren, and Mercedes, to win 100 races. Notable drivers for Williams include Ayrton Senna, Jacques Villeneuve, Damon Hill, and Nigel Mansell. Williams also has business interests beyond Formula One, establishing Williams Advanced Engineering and Williams Hybrid Power to adapt technology originally developed for Formula One for commercial applications.

In May 2020, Williams announced they were seeking buyers for a portion of the team due to poor financial performance in 2019 and that they had terminated the contract of title sponsor ROKiT. On 21 August 2020, Williams was acquired by Dorilton Capital. Frank and Claire Williams stepped down from being Manager and Deputy Manager of the team on 6 September 2020, with the 2020 Italian Grand Prix being their last time in their respective positions.
