About the Williams FW-13B Renault
Drastic regulation changes for F-1 events, took effect starting the 1989 Formula-One racing season. One regulation banned turbo-charge engines, limiting cars to normally aspirated powerplants with a maximum displacement of 3.5 liters. To comply with the new regulations, the renowed Williams racing team, together with Renault, created the FW12C racing car for the '89 season, using Renault's V-10 cylinder type RS1 powerplant. Later that year the team introduced an improved FW13 racer, which placed 2nd in the constructor's title competition.
