New title sponsor for F1 team

Williams Racing Livery Unveil

Williams Racing Livery Unveil

Claire Williams claims she would have been sacked if father and boss Frank had not liked the paint job on the Williams F1 team's latest cars.

Despite five years with the predominantly white livery of former title sponsor Martini, Williams is still associated with the dark shade of blue it carried during its dominant years of the 1990s.

Though her father founded his team in an era when, other than being able to buy a ready to race auto from the likes of March or McLaren, one was able to build one's own, install a Hewland gearbox and Cosworth and go F1 racing, such concepts are a distant memory today.

The team's 2019 livery was revealed at their Grove base on Monday, with the new light blue, white and black colour scheme a big visual change ahead of a season in which Williams are aiming to rebound from a wretched 2018.

Claire Williams obviously expressed her delight to welcome ROKiT onboard, and revealed what she believed had been the single most important thing that sealed Williams' deal with its new partner.

Robert Kubica, who has not competed in Formula 1 since the 2010 season, and rookie George Russell are set to drive for the team in the 2019 season after Lance Stroll and Sergey Sirotkin drove for the team in the 2018 season. "I was a little nervous presenting it".

This action affects approximately 4,200 vehicles in the United States and federalized territories and approximately 150 in Canada. The company said it is now unaware of any reports of accidents or injuries resulting from the condition.

Williams are coming off of a season that resulted in them finishing in 10th (last) place in the constructor standings after they scored only seven points on three top 10 finishes. But he was understanding of the arguments behind it, that this is telling the world a very clear story and delivering a very clear message in my mind as to where we are. "I am still here, and if he didn't like it, he would have fired me".

"We never say our target is to be X, Y or Z, that's unsafe", she added.

"A Formula One vehicle is your shop window to the world so I wanted to make sure we came out with a really bright livery".

Collaborations between F1 teams remain a key concern ahead of the 2021 overhaul planned by F1 owner Liberty Media, because there are concerns manufacturers will user smaller outfits to help get around future budget cap restrictions.

"Lewis goes out there to work on every aspect and really build that team around him, which is why he and Mercedes are so strong".
