Williams Unveils Striking Blue Livery for 2024 F1 Season

Williams has unveiled the paint scheme for their 2024 Formula 1 vehicle, the FW46, which Alex Albon and Logan Sargeant will pilot in the forthcoming 2024 F1 campaign.

The team based in Grove unveiled the paint scheme for their 2024 Formula 1 car during a unique event held in New York.

Their new model, the FW46, will feature a vibrant blue color scheme. According to the team’s statement, it “links Williams’ championship-winning heritage with its mission to return to the front of the grid”.

The paint design for the 2024 season is “a contemporary tribute to Williams Racing’s legacy, which includes nine Constructors’ World Championships, seven Drivers’ Championships, and 114 race wins.

” The latest vehicle will carry the name FW46, continuing the naming convention initiated by the iconic team founder, Sir Frank Williams.

“The livery seamlessly blends past glory with future aspirations to make history again, featuring a vibrant color transition from Heritage Navy Blue to New Era Williams.

“A red and white pinstripe, reflecting Williams’ position as a British icon and inspired by historic cars from the 1985 FW10 driven by Nigel Mansell and Keke Rosberg to the 1997 Championship-winning FW19 piloted to glory by Jacques Villeneuve, is meticulously integrated for a classy yet powerful look.” the team mentioned.

The FW46 is scheduled to hit the track for the first time during a promotional filming day in Bahrain on February 20, just before the Official Pre-Season test starts on February 21.

Entering his second year in the role of Team Principal for Williams, James Vowles remarked: “It is a significant milestone to unveil the 2024 livery at an iconic location in New York City.

The FW46 has been the focus of the team for many months and there is still a tremendous effort going in from everyone at Grove to deliver our challenger for this year.

“As we look to build on the momentum from last season, we have a driver line-up in Alex and Logan that is capable of consistently fighting for points while helping lead our development for the future.

“Since joining Williams Racing a year ago, I’ve seen this team pull together to overcome a number of challenges and claim seventh in the Constructors’ Championship, which meant a great deal for everyone involved. We’ve also shown the world that we’re building the foundations for moving forward.

“We’ll continue to strengthen the team both on and off the track through improvements to our infrastructure, investing in our people, and attracting fantastic new partners like Komatsu.

“Of course, there’s still a long way to go on this journey together but I know our fans, partners, and everyone at Grove HQ are pushing as one to create new history for this iconic team.

“It will take time, but everyone’s support is integral to help drive us towards success in the years to come. I’m looking forward to seeing what this season holds for us.”

“Coming off the back of a very positive year we’re hoping to build on our progress into 2024, working hard to make some good steps forward in performance,” Alex Albon shared regarding the new vehicle.

“We’ve asked a lot of the team and the factory to get this car where it needs to be, and we’ve also slightly changed the philosophy of the car, so I’m interested to see if we can improve some of the characteristics it has historically had.

“It will require an adjustment in driving style but I’m confident it will be a change for the better.”

Delving into the details of the new paint scheme, Logan Sargeant stated: “After unveiling this great livery I’m now itching to get behind the wheel of the FW46 and keep developing as a driver. I’ve had a productive off-season that has allowed me to prepare both physically and mentally for the year ahead.

“Taking the time to properly reflect on my rookie season, there’s been a lot of lessons learned and experience gained that can only benefit me as I enter this new season.

“I know my goals this year. I’ll be looking to build on the progress I’ve made since being a part of the Williams Racing family. I intend to help contribute more to the team’s success. Everyone at Grove has been working tirelessly to deliver the FW46 over the winter break.

“I can’t thank them enough for their hard work and the support they’ve given me. Hopefully, we can achieve some great results together in 2024.”

Additionally, Williams has revealed a long-term Principal Partnership agreement with Komatsu, a top provider of construction, mining, forestry, and industrial heavy machinery. Komatsu is reigniting its alliance with Williams, reminiscing about a fruitful collaboration during the 1980s and 1990s.

This previous partnership saw Komatsu supplying gearbox parts for the championship-winning vehicles of 1996 and 1997.

The Komatsu emblem will be distinctly displayed on the FW46, piloted by Alex Albon and Logan Sargeant, along with the racing suits of the drivers and the official attire of the Williams Racing team.
