Williams to celebrate 800th race with special livery

The team will run a special one-off livery for the British and Hungarian Grands Prix.

Williams will run a special livery to celebrate their 800th race at the British and Hungarian Grands Prix. The one-off will appear first at Silverstone, as it was supposed to be their 800th event before the postponement of the Emilia Romagna GP earlier this year. British fans will be given the opportunity to celebrate the occasion and their rich heritage. They will run the same livery for their actual eighth centennial at the following Hungarian GP, with a special sporting emblem in Budapest. The livery will pay tribute to their British heritage and their founder, the late Sir Frank Williams.

Vowles: 800 races 'remarkable' achievement

Team Principal, James Vowles, hailed the impressive milestone of the team having established itself as one of the stalwarts of the grid over the last 46 years. "Reaching the milestone of our 800th Grand Prix is a remarkable achievement for Williams Racing,” said Vowles. “We are incredibly proud of our history and the legacy built over the years. Over our 46-year history, the team has achieved incredible results. "With nine Constructors’ championships and seven Drivers’ titles to our name we are the second most successful Formula 1 team of all time, only behind Ferrari. "We invite all our fans to join us in this celebration as we pay tribute to our iconic past and look towards a bright future."
