1 Mins read

Williams have today unveiled the livery that will decorate the new FW33 for the 2011 Formula 1 season.

The new paintwork was presented to the public for the first time this morning at an event broadcast online.

It resembles the style used by the team in the 1990s when they were sponsored by cigarette company Rothmans, although the most visible sponsor names on the car now are from energy company Petroleos de Venezuela (PDVSA) and employment firm Randstad.

Speaking at today’s event, technical director Sam Michael gave an upbeat evaluation of the team’s chances this season.

“All the testing has shown that we have a competitive car,” he said. “As long as we develop the car quickly, we can have a good year. As a team, we are more ambitious than ever.”

The first track outing for the FW33 in its new livery will be at the final pre-season test in Barcelona, which begins on March 8th.
