New Williams carries tribute to team founder

Williams team principal James Vowles says the livery of the team’s new FW46 has a tribute to the team’s founder Sir Frank Williams.

Unveiled yesterday, the revised livery for the 2024 Williams includes an arrow motif echoing that of the logo of Frank Williams Racing Cars – the precursor to Williams Grand Prix Engineering. Vowles said he has no intention of separating from Williams’ heritage.

“I think it’s one of the biggest brands – certainly in motorsport and certainly in the UK,” Vowles told media including RaceFans. “I also have no desire whatsoever to change it – nor does Dorilton, for that matter – because it means a tremendous amount to me.

“Frank and his legacy remain in us. You’ll see in the livery now as well, if you look at the back you’ll see his arrow, subtly embedded in there. You’ll see a bit of Silverstone as well. I really wanted his mark on the car. I wanted to reflect that I’m not here to replace him, I’m here to carry on the legacy that is Williams.”

Singapore to review grand prix deal

The Singaporean government will review the details of its deal to host the Singapore Grand Prix following a corruption investigation into a former minister.

Transport minister S. Isawaran resigned after corruption charges were brought against him, which he denies. He allegedly received gifts worth over £100,000 over years from businessman Ong Beng Seng. The Singapore government will review the terms of its contract with Formula 1 following the charges.
