Williams has confirmed that it will unveil its 2019 livery on Monday, February 11th, one week before pre-season testing kicks off in Barcelona. Williams will be launching on the same day as Toro Rosso, who have opted for the 11th.

Williams endured a difficult 2018 campaign, ending the season bottom of the constructors' championship. This year, it has recruited Mercedes junior Geroge Russell and promoted its 2018 development driver Robert Kubica.

Williams is also set to announce a brand new title sponsor next Monday. Martini opted to leave the Grove outfit after five years in partnership in the turbo hybrid era.

Williams will release images displaying its new livery, however it will not be showing off its 2019 car with the new colours until Barcelona.

  • I expect this to be the most boring livery on the grid. Please surprise me, Williams, because you are up against McLaren, the current worst livery that consist of two marvelously clashing colours not coupled in a beneficial fashion.

    • I actually expect something a bit different given that they are no longer contrasinted (or funded :-D) by Martini. That being said, you didn't like the Mclaren Llvery last year??? I thought it was brilliant. The only brilliant thing about that car I reckoned!

    • Nay, I found it incredibly boring, and Im generally not fond of that shade of orange mixed with that shade of blue. Had it been a more kinda metallic orange, as the McLaren P1, I woulda maybe stomached it a bit more, but it was a really boring, uninspired livery. And it was a really plain and empty car to boot. I hope you are correct, but history makes me convinced Williams will have a boring livery. A boring, plain livery is basically an empty billboard, ready for a company to spend huge sums of cash to put stickers on. And looking back at how Williams have done it before, and looking at how McLaren is still doing it, Im pretty sure that is the path they'll take.

    • The Assassin's Creed glitched skinless man? Yeah, it suits me well, but I found myself to be in season for shrimp jokes and ironic death traps. :)

  • Maybe they'll have a better year not being jinxed by that terrible Martini-Rosi livery. They haven't really dazzled with their livery in the recent past.

  • Apparently it's quite nice. Good to know the back row will be a pretty row
