But yeah, shall wait for Williams next, not expecting radical livery changes this year.


Well, iirc Williams have lost Martini now as a sponsor? So I'd imagine the iconic swooshy lines will be gone.
Could be even blander than you'd like :?

Erad, you were spot on with Williams.

Not a bad looking livery, it's not Martini, but that has a historic relevance we love.

STR same same.

McLaren now had British American Tobacco backing, so interesting there, still don't understand why Tobacco sponsor sports when they get not advertising from it.

Also I didn't know that "minnow" or however you spell it was Marlboro related, and the Aussie government are looking into it as part of their anti tobacco laws and advertising.

There's the Williams "W" logo on the nose at least.

Wow, that's... small.

Hopefully this is just the marketing wank and the race car will pay better homage to one of the greatest F1 teams of all time.

Unfortunately the Williams Branding no longer brings them in the money that the team needs, so a bigger Williams logo/branding is taking up commercial realestate that's worth important financial benefit to the team.

As long as they don't sell the "Williams F1" name, which is not likely to happen, as it's still worth something. The legacy continues to stand.

Well put Pete. Right on the money (pun intended).

Still sad though.

Thinking about it, when was the last time Williams ran with their own name on the car?
The "W" logo on the nose is a more recent thing (since Martini came back?)

Optimistic, but if they keep the livery for 2021, maybe. (and if Dan isn't in a Mercedes/Ferrari by then)

2019 and 2020, lets just hope for opportunistic podiums.

People are in love with RBR's test livery, I don't care much for it tbh.

Mercedes looking fast standing still again.

In case you guys haven't seen.
Other cars seem evolutionary, these two though have some tasty ideas.
