Williams releases first images of new-spec FW42


After the unveiling of its new livery and partnership with ROKiT last Monday, Williams has released the first images of its 2019 charger, the FW42.

The Grove-based outfit had initially planned to shake down its new-spec design this weekend at the Circuit de Catalunya ahead of Monday's start of pre-season testing.

The team scrapped its filming day in order to focus on completing the build-up of its first chassis.

"As anyone would expect, we have had an extremely aggressive engineering programme over the winter," said deputy team principal Claire Williams.

"As such, we have taken the decision not to run our car during our filming day this weekend in order to allow the team to maximise the time at the factory before we head to Barcelona for the first day of the test on February 18th."
