Oh dear, last year the car performed like a backmarker, this year the livery will make them look like one.


The sponsor is part of ROK brands that seems to cover everything from phones to spring water..

Hope that Williams got the sponsorship money upfront, as I wonder whether the company will be around at the end of the season. Look at their accounts - 2017 ending accounts showed an accrued losses of some 16 million, roughly 4 million per year over 4 years.

Livery looks fine to me! Obviously after Martini almost anything else will come as a disappointment- to some degree.......

They are apparently also funding Nic Hamilton in the BTCC, so splashing the cash.

My first impression is that I like the Williams livery. I know nothing about the brand.

I'm not sure about the Rexona branding and their "Tick"being in Black on the curve of the sidepods that have a black underside. Maybe once we see other angles in better light it stands out more.

Whytes have taken a claim against Rich Energy. Rich Energy have been attempting to stop Whytes using the logo, despite them having used that logo for years.

Storey said it was all nonsense, once again ticking the box of "If your CEO keeps tell you how legit they are, they are not legit."

Not a bad livery to be fair. Much needed funding too

i mean, we're all suspicious of the williams sponsor for the same reason, right? at least they've tried to come up with a different, new product with the lifestyle product bundling thing in a crowded, mature marketplace. in theory.

Given the team colours and the lack of a non Renault Group main sponsor, there isn't a great deal more they could do that hasn't been done previously. I'd say an elemental of if it ain't' broke ...

At least the polished Black and yellow that is used is more stint and should stand out in comparison to the Matt Black and dull gold of the Haas.
