- The FW07B evolved into the FW07C for 1981, and this time it was Reutemann who challenged Piquet for the championship, narrowly missing out in the final race, but Williams took home the constructors' championship after four more wins. Further work was done to the suspension, especially after the FIA banned the moveable skirts needed for.
- All the winners from the 1981 F1 World Championship season. After a tortuous winter of politics, the FISA/FOCA 'war' was finally resolved and the 1981 season opened late at Long Beach. To reduce downforce and cornering speeds, sliding skirts had been banned and a minimum sidepod ground clearance of 6cm was now stipulated. Although Riccardo Patrese’s Arrows qualified on pole in California.
- Carlos Reutemann and Alan Jones win four races and bag the team its second consecutive constructors' championship. Reutemann loses out on the drivers' title by one point at the final race in Las Vegas, leading him to announce his retirement from the sport.

This is as early as the official FOCA reviews stretch back, and it shows. The 1981 season review video is disjointed and narrated rather poorly by the nevertheless very well-informed F1 pundit Simon Taylor.
It’s a shame because aside from the politicking and the sad events of Zolder (where one mechanic was killed and another shockingly run over and injured during a chaotic race start) there was a lot of entertaining action in 1981.
Famously, the season began with Carlos Reutemann infuriating his Williams team-mate Alan Jones by refusing to defer to team orders in the Brazilian Grand Prix.
Reutemann and Nelson Piquet subsequently raced for the championship before Reutemann crumbled at the final round and Piquet took the points he needed, despite vomiting with exhaustion in his helmet. Readcube word plugin.
There are two fabulous wins from Gilles Villeneuve – indeed, his final two.
But it’s all rather spoiled by Taylor’s stilted commentary and the odd way in which the film is compiled, with a large amount of material presented in a haphazard fashion at the beginning of the feature, before settling into a chronological review of the year after about half an hour. The commentary is more observation than information.
Best bit: Villeneuve single-handedly holds off four rival for nearly seventy laps at Jarama to take an inspired win.
