Williams puts ‘British twist’ on FW45 for Silverstone milestone

Post date:



Williams has unveiled the special livery that will adorn its FW45 car at Silverstone next weekend and which will celebrate the team’s 800th Grand Prix.

Technically, Budapest later this month will mark the Grove-based outfit’s 800th race in Formula 1

The team’s milestone was pushed back from Silverstone to the Hungaroring following the cancellation of the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix at Imola back in May.

But Williams was determined to honour its British fan base at its home race next weekend, ensuring the team’s supporters don’t miss out on the commemorative moment.


“We are excited to unveil an adapted livery for the British Grand Prix, designed with a British twist, while also acknowledging our past, as part of the celebrations to mark our 800th Grand Prix,” Williams said on Wednesday.

“The British Grand Prix was set to be the team’s eighth centennial but, with the cancellation of Imola in May, that landmark shifted to the following race in Budapest.

“As a result, we’ll be celebrating over both weekends, to ensure our home fans in the UK can be part of the commemoration.

“The one-off Silverstone design, running on both FW45s of Alex Albon and Logan Sargeant this weekend, pays homage to the team’s British heritage and to our beloved founder, the late Sir Frank Williams.”
