Williams has unveiled its livery for 2023 in a season launch event at their Grove HQ, in a show hosted by Will Buxton.
Both of William’s 2023 drivers Alex Albon and Logan Sargent were present at the event, along with the members of the Williams’ Racing Driver academy, which boasted names like Jamie Chadwick, Zack O’Sullivan, Ollie Gray, and Franco Colapinto.
The Williams launch is always a quietly anticipated one with the team having some of the most iconic liveries in Formula 1 history, along with the Williams livery always being largely different year on year.
This was different though with the Livery being largely the same as last year, even with the newly announced Gulf sponsorship only the company logo to the car. Although we could see a special livery being used, similar to their partnership with McLaren in recent seasons.
Mathew Savage, the chair of the board at Williams Racing is excited about the new Gulf partnership:
“I am incredibly excited about this partnership between Williams Racing and Gulf, a renowned and trusted global brand, who have put their trust in us as a long-term partner,”
Alex Albon thinks the car looks great:
“The Car Looks great and will hit the track at Silverstone. The team has worked really hard last year and over the winter to address some key areas in our car, putting in the work to try and maximize what we get out of the car for 2023, so I’m looking forward to seeing what the FW45 can do.”
Logan Sargent is really motivated to get his season started:
“I’m super motivated and we’ve put a lot of hard work in. The car is looking amazing and it shows the huge effort the team has put in the off-season, so I’m looking forward to getting started at Silverstone before heading out to Bahrain.”
