1980 World Champion, Alan Jones was the first driver to win a Formula One World Championship with the Williams team, and the second Australian to do so following triple World Champion Sir Jack Brabham. Jones is also the last Australian driver to win the Australian Grand Prix, winning the 1980 event at Calder Park Raceway, having lapped the field consisting mostly of Formula 5000 cars while he was driving his Formula One Championship winning Williams FW07B.
Denny Hulme. The 1967 Championship was essentially an internal affair within the Brabham team for most of the year, but the new Lotus 49 gave Jim Clark and Graham Hill the opportunity to bite back.

He won the Championship by five points from Brabham, and a further five from Jim Clark.
