Williams will also sport a special F1 British GP livery in homage to Frank; as Mick Schumacher gets a test with McLaren.
Williams Racing unveils an adapted livery for the British Grand Prix, designed with a British twist, while also acknowledging our past, as part of the celebrations to mark its 800th Grand Prix.
The British Grand Prix was set to be the Grove-based team’s eighth centennial but, with the cancellation of Imola last month, that landmark shifts to the following race in Budapest. Williams Racing is celebrating over both weekends, to ensure its home fans in the UK can be part of the commemoration.
The one-off Silverstone design, running on both FW45’s of Alex Albon and Logan Sargeant this weekend, pays homage to the team’s British heritage and to its beloved founder, the late Sir Frank Williams.
Mick’s with us today! Mick Schumacher, who is our reserve F1 driver, is testing our 2021 MCL35M with the team in Portimao. Joining Mick are some of our mechanic and engineering apprentices and interns, gaining valuable experience working in a trackside environment.
