The Williams FW32 was a Formula One motor racing car made by Williams for the 2010 season and powered by the sport's brand-new entry-level Cosworth CA2010 engine.[2] The car is raced by Rubens Barrichello and 2009 GP2 Series champion Nico Hülkenberg.

The car was first driven in shakedown tests at Silverstone on January 28[3] before it was officially unveiled at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo near Valencia, Spain at the first official test on February 1.[4] After Hülkenberg completed the shakedown at Silverstone, Barrichello was given the first day's running at the test, completing 75 laps.[5] Hülkenberg took the car's first pole position at the Brazilian Grand Prix in variable conditions.
