World Champion Alain Prost once described the Williams-Renault FW15C, as “really a little Airbus” -his way of describing an F1 car in the electronic era.
Prost campaigned seven grands prix in the 1993 season, from Germany to Australia. He won the German grand prix where S/N 005 debuted. It was his 51st and final victory on July 25.
This victory contributed to his 4th F1 World Champion title, which was awarded two months later, on September 26 at Estoril in Portugal. Again in S/N 005, Alain reached the podium and became world champion. Winner was Michael Schumacher in his Benetton-Ford, who would capture his first World Championship in 1994.
Prost drove this same chassis to 2nd place in Suzuka in Japan on October 24 and 2nd in Australia behind Ayrton Senna in a McLaren on November 7. The last race in Adelaide marked the end of Prost’s F1 career and that of the Williams-Renault FW15C S/N 005.
