I believe the sponsor was Norev, not Politoys, though both are miniature toy car manufacturers. 11:18, 23 May 2007 (UTC)

Definitely Politoys - see this 8W article. But thanks for raising something you think might be incorrect on the talk page. DH85868993 14:52, 23 May 2007 (UTC)

Williams F1[edit]

Shouldn't we merge this article with Williams F1? Even the car names are in a sequence. Isn't it the same team that changed its name? Fsarmony (talk) 16:56, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

It's debatable whether FWRC and WPGE/WilliamsF1 are "the same team". Frank Williams originally founded FWRC, then brought in Walter Wolf as a partner. Over time, Frank's level of control diminished to the point where Wolf took over completely and the team became Walter Wolf Racing. Williams then formed a new team, Williams Grand Prix Engineering (now known as WilliamsF1) with Patrick Head, originally running a customer March before building their own cars starting with the Williams FW06. Here is a link to the most recent discussion on the matter. DH85868993 (talk) 02:11, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

Wolf-Williams Racing[edit]

Should we have a redirect from Wolf-Williams Racing to Frank Williams Racing Cars. it is the same team that changed its name? (talk) 17:26, 17 March 2016 (UTC)

A re-direct already exists. Eagleash (talk) 17:33, 17 March 2016 (UTC)
To clarify, it didn't when the IP editor posed the question, but it does now. DH85868993 (talk) 20:09, 17 March 2016 (UTC)
A re-direct existed from Wolf Williams without the 'racing' (to a section which was subsequently renamed). A re-direct from Wolf Williams Racing was recently requested and declined due to the pre-existing one and the probability that an article which failed notability would be created from it as the the previous Wolf Williams draft did. (Which was deleted as copy-vio). Eagleash (talk) 22:12, 17 March 2016 (UTC)
