Williams’ 2015 Car Is Shaken, Not Stirred



We had tomorrow, 22nd January, down as the launch date for the Williams FW37 – but it’s snuck out today, thanks to a cover story in F1 Racing magazine. Unsurprisingly, of course, the brilliant Martini livery from last year survives intact with just a few tweaks.

The Martini branding on the engine cover has expanded in size, which is good as it reduces the amount of plain white on the car and strengthens the overall look. Rexona, meanwhile, join as a new major sponsor on the sidepod, having last been seen over at Lotus. And there’s a tweak to the presentation of the race numbers, too – they now seem to be in a fairly straightforward, uniform font as opposed to last year.

All in all: it’s the Martini Williams yet again, and that’s something to be happy about. As we await the Force India launch at 3pm today, the 2015 launch season has got off to a pleasant start.

    If it’s not broken…. Really like the livery, shame the nose of the car isn’t any better looking

    Actually, Williams changed the font of the numbers on the side of the car from the stylised font to the uniform font early in 2014, I think approximately at the Spanish GP.

    The Rexona livery doesn’t really fit in with the livery, not really a fan of it compared to last year’s for some reason.

    The Martini stripes need more drama and draping over the side pods.

      Exactly…run the stripes from the front top of the sidepod down to the lower right near the exhaust exit.
