Williams F1 only just stopped using Excel to manage their build

I can’t even.

It is not an exaggeration to say that up to and including at least the initial work on the 2024 Williams, its car builds were handled using Microsoft Excel, with a list of around 20,000 individual components and parts.

According to Vowles, the Excel spreadsheet was being migrated to a digital system at the same time the car’s technology base” was going through its own colossal overhaul.
