At the unveiling of their 2011 livery this morning, Williams also announced a new partnership with Michael Caines MBE, one of Britain’s most acclaimed chefs.

Guests at today’s event were treated to a five course menu of Caines’ signature dishes, and the chef will be working with the team throughout 2011 to help them develop their hospitality provisions.

Caines has made his name at Gidleigh Park, a prestigious country house hotel on the edge of Dartmoor, where he has earned two Michelin stars, and retained them for 12 years. He was also named AA Chef’s Chef of the Year in 2007 and awarded an MBE in 2006 for services to the hospitality industry.

“I am thrilled to be involved with the AT&T Williams team as an official partner and to help them develop their already high standards of hospitality,” said Caines. “It is great to work with their chefs, Adam Dixon, Jon Smee and the team on the menus as well as with Jo Turley on front of house. It is a prestigious relationship and something we are very excited about and proud of. I am a petrolhead at heart and I'm passionate about Formula One. I have followed Williams over many years so for me this involvement is just brilliant.”

Sir Frank Williams also commented on the partnership: “We are delighted to welcome Michael Caines as an Official Partner of the team,” said the eponymous team owner. “He has an outstanding reputation as one of Britain's most admired chefs and our relationship aims to bring his Michelin-stared food and hospitality to the team's motorhome facility over race weekends. We are very much looking forward to working with him over the coming months.”
