Well we will have the Williams launch date on the 17th February, officially confirmed by the team.

It is planned to be on at 8:00 GMT

Its a digital launch only, according to Autosport. Hopefully the new car will be ready for Feb 19th! Fingers crossed!

The wind model in the video might be fw43. Fw42 never had a full shark fin or a double t-wing like on the model in the video.

Judging by that video the livery will be red.

That's my guess also.

Whether that was 42 or the overall shape of the new car will be identical to last year.Sidepod shape, nose, bargeboard area and air inlets, all look the same with last season car.

They would never put the 43 in a video like that. I'd assume its potentially even the fw41

Why not? It's not like you can see the important bits of the car anyway and everyone suspects it will be just an upgraded FW42.

The red livery could be the bomb though.

Yeah been looking in more detail and I may be wrong. There are some details about the wind tunnel car that dont seem familiar. Could be the 43 or a variant of the 42 research that they were doing for this years car. In a few weeks all will be revealed anyway

They’re certainly hinting at a red livery. Was that a red swatch that they were matching color to? In a way though I think it’ll be a bit embarrassing if they move away from that light blue. They made such a big deal last year about this new color signifying the beginning of a new era of Williams, and how important this change in livery was, only to completely back track on that one year later. On the plus side, I think some red would look fantastic!!

Red and black like the Rokit logo. That would be dope.

A red Williams will never be a dope even if it looks beautiful.

I've posted it before, and I will repost. But a livery like this would drop my jaw..

Red Williams is intriguing although I prefer blue-clad williams

i very much doubt it would be red.

There is a vote on the proposed colours on the Williams Twitter account if anyone interested



100% Williams
WILL SUPPORT WILLIAMS AS LONG AS THEY HAVE A TEAM

I agree. I think they may add some red but they spent so much time banging on about how crucial this new blue is for the future of William's that I doubt they would drop it after just 1 season. That being said, I'd rather they had a dark blue/red livery

guys what about the digital lunch, are we the only team not to have a proper launch date? same as last year, it does not bode well, are we chasing deadlines, again?

Re: 2020 Launch Date
Andrew Hooper 01 February, 2020 02:09
I am just not sure about the red as it has been removed from the ROKiT Williams logo.

It doesn't really matter. The car will be on it's way to Barcelona on the proposed release date. It's unlikely they would already have a test chassis and another for a launch available. All complete components will be trickling through to Barcelona
