Williams Reveal New Livery

After Rokit terminated their sponsorship deal, Williams had to redesign their livery for this season. What do you guys think? I kinda liked the Rokit livery for this year, but both are better than what they ran last year.

You mean Alpha Tauri

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. The color scheme looks very similar between the two. Hopefully it wont be too hard to differentiate the two on track.

^^^ Williams livery now is spot on, the large Rokit maroon patch of previous was a little in the face and I believe that's Kubica's favourite number on there,40.

I was curios why they went with 40 on the photo's as well. I assumed it was the number they used for anyone testing in their cars, so a neutral choice for official photos.

I dont know if it's Kubica's favorite number though. He originally wanted 4 for last season and no driver was assigned 40 to my recollection.

I must admit I was more at guessing that Kubica was wanting it to reflect on the effort of the brave Polish fighter aces in the Battle of Britain
