Williams confirm the 2020 livery will change after ROKiT split

Williams confirm the 2020 livery will change after ROKiT split

Williams deputy team principal Claire Williams has said that the 2020 Formula 1 car will feature an updated livery when racing begins - the red of ROKiT set to disappear from the car.

On Friday morning, Williams announced the team were considering bids for either a partial or complete sale of the team. At the same time, it was confirmed that the team had split with title sponsor ROKiT and major partner ROK drinks.

The current livery, as has already been rendered on the official Formula 1 2020 game, features a ROKiT branded red rear wing and side pods.

“Obviously, the livery is something that we’ve got to look at [for] when we go racing again, hopefully in July,” Williams told The Race. “F1 have put a marker in the sand for July 6, we will unveil our new livery before we hit the race track.”

Not wanting to go into the details behind the split, Williams focused on the goal of attracting a new title sponsor to the team.

Williams added: “We have done a great job in bringing title sponsors and big sponsors into this sport over many, many years.

“We bought in Martini in 2014 off the back of finishing, ninth, eighth and ninth [in the constructors’ championship] the three previous seasons, and then we bought in ROKiT when we had finished 10th in the championship, so I have confidence that we can replace the ROKiT money."
