On the Formula 1 track, things couldn’t really have been worse for Williams last season as they limped their way through 2019 as the clear worst team on the grid. Now, more bad news comes their way behind the scenes after the deodorant manufacturer severed ties, as reported by Sportowe Fakty.

This news comes after another huge sponsor, Polish oil company Orlen, left to become the title sponsor of Alfa Romeo after Robert Kubica switched teams to become a reserve driver for Alfa, having previously made his return from injury to the sport with Williams last season.
