Williams should just do a throwback scheme.
Go back to Rothman's colours.  Or better yet, Canon.
Even better, take the Lotus JPS scheme and work with that.  Black and Gold.

As long as they trash Haas they could be painted up like a ladybug for all I farking care. Even Blanche's ladybugs.

And yet, none of the teams have figured out that with googly eyes their cars would be better in every way.

Typo, or oddly correct?

Why does an F1 car need to be "launched"? I can't buy one, and it's not a farking ship. Show up with it at the first practice and say "this is our new car".

I was thinking that with all that extra space on the car begging for sponsors, all the logos should move to the sides, and the view from the front should look like Nigel's face, and the front wing painted to look like a moustache.

They do have a merc store, which a lot of people are into.

Otherwise, I agree its kinda boring. They all look the same with different colours.

Thing is, Williams was competitive in this turbo hybrid era, up until 2017 or so, when Bottas left for Mercedes and Massa retired (twice).

It really went downhill fast for them.

It's part of the buildup to the new season.

As an F1 fan, it helps fill the time before testing and the first grand prix.

BTW, the preseason test starts Friday

It's mostly a 'look at our sponsors' exercise these days, it's not uncommon for it to actually be last years car in the new colours so as not to give away *too* much stuff before testing starts.
