New York City, New York – Williams Racing has unveiled the livery for their cars in the upcoming F1 season during a special launch event in New York City. The team showcased an evolved deep blue design that reflects their championship-winning heritage and their determination to return to the forefront of the grid. This reveal follows livery presentations from other F1 teams, McLaren and Haas, as they all prepare for the highly anticipated 2024 season.
The event in New York also served as the platform for the announcement of a new multi-year headline partnership between Williams and Komatsu, a leading manufacturer of construction, mining, forestry, and industrial heavy equipment. This partnership marks a significant milestone in the relationship between the two parties, as they previously enjoyed a successful collaboration in the 1980s and 1990s, capturing numerous victories and championships.
With James Vowles at the helm as Team Principal, Williams Racing experienced a notable uptick in performance, rising from the bottom of the F1 constructors’ standings to seventh place in 2023. Driver Alex Albon played a pivotal role in this achievement, contributing to the majority of the team’s points. Albon is set to continue with the team for the 2024 season, alongside rookie driver Logan Sargeant.
Vowles expressed the significance of unveiling the 2024 livery in New York City, emphasizing the team’s resilience in overcoming challenges and their determination to build a stronger foundation for the future. The upcoming season holds promise for Williams Racing, and the team is eager to make their mark on the track.
The FW46, Williams’ new car, is scheduled to make its track debut at a promotional filming day in Bahrain on February 20, ahead of official pre-season testing at the same venue the following day. The team is optimistic about the season ahead, looking forward to the support of fans, partners, and their headquarters in Grove, as they strive for success in the coming years.
