With their 2022 launch only a matter of days away, Williams Racing have announced a multi-year deal with The Financial Times, extending their current partnership.
The partnership which is now entering its third year, has proved to be successful for both parties. Williams and The Financial Times have both seen their visibility grow amongst global and influential audiences.
The renewal will see the return of exclusive in-person events across the globe throughout the racing calendar at Williams, which will bring the world of Formula One to life for The Financial Times key commercial partners. As part of the new deal, the Financial Times will also have a presence in Williams’ new digital fan engagement platform.
