There are many unknowns awaiting the teams in the forthcoming Formula One season, but one thing is certain: the BMW WilliamsF1 Team will do everything in its power to avoid a repeat of the disappointing 2004 season.

For four years, the BMW WilliamsF1 Team turned up at the race track with the same brace of drivers. During this time, Juan Pablo Montoya and Ralf Schumacher took ten wins between them, including three one-two victories. In 2005, there will be new faces in the cockpits: Australian Mark Webber (28) and German Nick Heidfeld (27) will be lining up on the grid for the BMW WilliamsF1 Team. Whereas Webber was signed up in July 2004, it wasn't until the end of the December '04 and January '05 tests that Heidfeld came out on top against Brazilian contender Antonio Pizzonia (24). Pizzonia was a test driver for the team in 2002 and 2004, and last year competed in four races replacing the injured Ralf Schumacher. In 2005, he will continue as an official test and reserve driver for the BMW WilliamsF1 Team.

Heidfeld brings along the greatest Formula One racing experience of the three. Inclusive of the 2004 season, the German has contested 84 Grands Prix and picked up 28 World Championship points. Webber's tally amounts to 50 Grands Prix and 26 points, while Pizzonia has 15 F1 races and six points under his belt.
