Williams Racing will unveil its 2020 challenger on February at 8 am GMT during an online launch that will reveal only digital imagery of its FW43.

The beleaguered British outfit has endured two successive dismal seasons in Formula 1, scoring just a single point in last year's Constructors' championship.

This year, Williams will target a timely roll-out of its car in Barcelona, with pre-season testing kicking off on February 19 at the Circuit de Catalunya, hopefully avoiding the costly delay that undermined the start of its campaign in 2019.

To help turn around its fortunes, Williams has restructured its technical department and hired several new engineers to lead its design staff in 2020.

On the driver front, Williams will rely once again on the talent of George Russell who will embark on his second season of Formula 1.

The young Briton will be flanked by 24-year-old rookie Nicholas Latifi who finished runner-up in 2019 in the FIA Formula 2 Championship.
