Williams will compete in the 2019 F1 season with their new car, the Williams FW42 (launch date TBC) and two new drivers, Poland’s Robert Kubica, returning to Formula 1 after a forced hiatus of eight years, and George Russell, making his F1 debut.
The team will be looking for a return to form after a poor 2018, during which they scored just seven points on their way to finishing bottom of both championships.
Williams went through a restructuring in 2018 which led to many key employees leaving the Grove outfit.
This included both 2018 drivers; Lance Stroll to join his father at Racing Point (formerly Force India), and Sergey Sirotkin moved on when his backers SMP couldn’t come to an agreement with Williams for the 2019 season.
Williams also reached the end of their deal with title sponsor Martini, with whom they’d partnered since 2013, giving the team an opportunity to sport a new livery for the first time in six years.
What remains consistent is Williams’ use of the Mercedes V6 1.6 litre turbo power unit.
