Williams have announced a new partnership with a leading global manufacturer of automotive wheels.
Dicastal, a part of the Citic Group, will provide the team with wheels which they will test on track for the first time next year following an extesive research and development programme.
"Our team members are excited to partner with Williams," said Nelson Wang, Chief Executive Officer of Dicastal. "The spirit of Formula One will inspire us to become more competitive, innovative and self-challenging. Williams’ technologies in racing will help us to develop products with higher performance for our customers."
"Here at Williams, we are always looking for the slightest advantage to edge out the competition, and light weighting is fundamental to that," added Williams deputy team principal and commercial director Claire WIlliams. "As an organisation, Dicastal’s dedication to engineering excellence perfectly matches our own and we look forward to working together."
