Williams have revealed the one-off livery they will use at this weekend’s British Grand Prix to celebrate their 800th Formula 1 grand prix.
The livery, which is an adaptation of the usual livery adoring the Williams FW45, has been “designed with a British twist” as it includes a stylisation of the Union Flag on the engine cover. The team’s founding year, 1977 is also printed on the engine cover and the greater use of a blue-and-white colour scheme harks back to liveries of the mid-1990s and the 2000s.
While the livery will only be used for one event, the 800th grand prix celebrations will take place over the next two race weekends as the team wanted to include their home fans in the commemoration once they discovered the landmark would move to being in Hungary.
As part of the Silverstone celebrations, Williams’ brand ambassador Jenson Button will drive the FW14B which dominated the 1992 season during the British Grand prix weekend.
Williams is also due to run a special livery at the Singapore Grand Prix in honour of one of its sponsors.
