Throughout the season it was developed and halfway in the season a 'B' variant was introduced which used pull-rod rear suspension to replace the push-rod suspension used in the FW10. Keke Rosberg proved the speed of the FW10B in the qualifying session of the British Grand Prix at Silverstone in which he recorded the fastest ever F1 lap with an average speed of 160.925 mph. This lap set the norm for almost two decades and was finally broken in the 2002 Monza Grand Prix, by Juan Pablo Montoya. The record staid in Williams hand's though, as Montoya drove a Williams FW24. Nigel Mansell won two races and Rosberg another one.

It is seen here at the 2002 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
