Williams unveils 2024 livery
Williams Racing unveiled the team's livery for the 2024 car to be driven by Alex Albon and Logan Sargeant.
The car was revealed in an event at Puma's New York store on Fifth Avenue.
The team also announced a new multi-year deal with heavy equipment company Komatsu
The FW46 will be debuted on track in preseason testing in Bahrain later in February.
Team principal James Vowles said,
It is a significant milestone to unveil the 2024 livery at an iconic location in New York City. The FW46 has been the focus of the team for many months and there is still a tremendous effort going in from everyone at Grove to deliver our challenger for this year.
As we look to build on the momentum from last season, we have a driver line-up in Alex and Logan that is capable of consistently fighting for points while helping lead our development for the future.
Since joining Williams Racing a year ago, I've seen this team pull together to overcome a number of challenges and claim seventh in the Constructors' Championship, which meant a great deal for everyone involved. We've also shown the world that we're building the foundations for moving forward.
We'll continue to strengthen the team both on and off the track through improvements to our infrastructure, investing in our people, and attracting fantastic new partners like Komatsu.
Of course, there's still a long way to go on this journey together but I know our fans, partners and everyone at Grove HQ is pushing as one to create new history for this iconic team. It will take time, but everyone's support is integral to help drive us towards success in the years to come. I'm looking forward to seeing what this season holds for us.
Komatsu CEO Hiroyuki Ogawa said,
Komatsu and Williams Racing have shared values around innovation and the development of our people, and through our partnership we look forward to Creating Value Together, both on and off the track. Our partnership with Williams Racing is aligned with Komatsu's mission to create value through manufacturing and technology innovations to empower a sustainable future where people, businesses and our planet can thrive together.
Alex Albon said,
Coming off the back of a very positive year we're hoping to build on our progress into 2024, working hard to make some good steps forward in performance. We've asked a lot of the team and the factory to get this car where it needs to be, and we've also slightly changed the philosophy of the car, so I'm interested to see if we can improve some of the characteristics it has historically had. It will require an adjustment in driving style but I'm confident it will be a change for the better.
Logan Sargeant said, "After unveiling this great livery I'm now itching to get behind the wheel of the FW46 and keep developing as a driver. I've had a productive off season that has allowed me to prepare both physically and mentally for the year ahead. Taking the time to properly reflect on my rookie season, there's been a lot of lessons learned and experience gained that can only benefit me as I enter this new season.
I know my goals this year. I'll be looking to build on the progress I've made since being a part of the Williams Racing family. I intend to help contribute more to the team's success. Everyone at Grove has been working tirelessly to deliver the FW46 over the winter break. I can't thank them enough for their hard work and the support they've given me. Hopefully we can achieve some great results together in 2024.
