Williams to run six special test liveries

They may not be having a car launch this year, but Williams are still getting in on the livery fun by running six special commemorative liveries during this year’s pre-season testing.

The liveries are to celebrate various milestones that WilliamsF1 will encounter during the 2008 season – including their thirtieth year in the sport, their 500th Grand Prix, and their 50,000th racing lap. Sir Frank himself, meanwhile, will become the longest-serving entrant in the history of the sport with a career – as driver and team owner – spanning some 39 years.

The first livery can be seen above, and is reminiscent of the all-blue livery the team ran in winter testing last year; it’s anyone’s guess as to whether the forthcoming design will simply be different combinations of blue and white, or if they’ll refer to classic Williams designs. Expect to see the second design hit the track at Valencia (and this site shortly afterwards!) next week.

    It would be nice to see a darker Williams livery this year.. those white one’s seem so.. ‘weak’

    At least, if the car isn’t to be that good as the FW14B, FW17B were, the livery would be something to admire..

    Anyway, hope that the 30th year car will be better like the ones that gave Williams so much nice moments to remember..

    Cheers for the Williams team and all the Williams fans across the globe!
