Williams have revealed the livery that will adorn their FW45 cars at the Singapore, Japanese and Qatar Grands Prix this year, following a fan vote that attracted 180,000 entries.
The competition, carried out in association with Gulf Oil International, gave Williams fans the opportunity to vote on four potential liveries – titled ‘Heritage’, ‘Bolder than Bold’, ‘Visionary’ and ‘Contemporary’ – with ‘Bolder than Bold’ winning out in the stakes, and now set to feature on the cars of Alex Albon and Logan Sargeant.
The livery will also be showcased at the annual Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK this weekend, with an FW45 showcar wearing the colours set to be featured on the Williams Racing stand at the event.
Speaking of the vote, James Vowles, Williams Team Principal, said: “This competition was an incredible opportunity for our fans to actively engage and shape the visual identity of our team.
“The winning design encapsulates the essence of the Gulf and Williams Racing partnership, reflecting on the past but building on our future. This livery will create a defining moment when it takes to the track later in the season.”
Williams ran another special livery at last weekend’s British Grand Prix, meanwhile, the team beginning celebrations for their 800th Grand Prix – a landmark figure they’ll reach at the upcoming Hungarian Grand Prix.
