Williams reveal 2023 livery and big sponsor deal

The team has unveiled what their FW45 will look like that will be driven by Alex Albon and Logan Sargeant during the 2023 Formula 1 season.

Williams have revealed the livery that will be used for the FW45 for the 2023 Formula 1 season. The livery is an evolution of the FW44, retaining the similar striking blue colours and diamond patterns in a matte finish. Fans will note that the car now adorns Gulf logos having been previously revealed by RacingNews365.com as making a return to F1 sponsorship with Williams. The company announced a long-term partnership with the team which sees its branding on the new car, along with race driver suits and team personnel kit. Williams plan to run the FW45 for the first time on track at Silverstone on 13 February, ahead of pre-season testing later in the month. Check out the FW45 from every angle in our gallery here.

Williams continue transformation

The FW45 will be driven by Alex Albon and Logan Sargeant, the latter becoming the first full-time American on the grid since Scott Speed in 2007. James Vowles also joins the team from Mercedes as Team Principal, replacing Jost Capitio who departed at the end of the 2022 season. Matthew Savage, Chairman of the Board at Williams, said: "As Williams Racing continues its transformation, we’re proud to unveil this year's livery. We are excited about this year's car, and I cannot thank the entire team at Grove enough for their hard work to get ready for the season. "I am delighted to welcome both new and existing partners to our journey. With our new Team Principal James Vowles joining us later this month, as well as our exciting driver line up of Alex and Logan, Williams Racing will be giving its all in 2023." The team lifted the covers on the car during an online event at their factory in Grove, Oxfordshire.
