Williams reveals 2024 livery as Komatsu returns as team partner


Williams unveiled the team’s new livery that will be carried on its 2024 contender by drivers Alex Albon and Logan Sargeant.

Williams says its car’s striking two-tone blue and black base links its “championship-winning heritage with its mission to return to the front of the grid”.

But in addition to its new livery, Williams also announced that it has rekindled its relationship with leading construction, mining and industrial equipment company Komatsu, a name that graced the Grove-based cars back in the 1980s and 1990s.

Williams says its livery “seamlessly blends past glory with future aspirations to make history again, featuring a vibrant colour transition from Heritage Navy Blue to New Era Williams”.

Furthermore, a red and white pinstripe, reflecting Williams’ position as a British icon and inspired by historic cars from the 1985 FW10 driven by Nigel Mansell and Keke Rosberg to the 1997 Championship-winning FW19 piloted to glory by Jacques Villeneuve, is meticulously integrated for a “classy yet powerful look”.

“The FW46 has been the focus of the team for many months and there is still a tremendous effort going in from everyone at Grove to deliver our challenger for this year,” commented Williams team boss James Vowles.

“As we look to build on the momentum from last season, we have a driver line-up in Alex and Logan that is capable of consistently fighting for points while helping lead our development for the future.


“Since joining Williams Racing a year ago, I’ve seen this team pull together to overcome a number of challenges and claim seventh in the Constructors’ Championship, which meant a great deal for everyone involved. We’ve also shown the world that we’re building the foundations for moving forward.

“We’ll continue to strengthen the team both on and off the track through improvements to our infrastructure, investing in our people, and attracting fantastic new partners like Komatsu.

“Of course, there’s still a long way to go on this journey together but I know our fans, partners and everyone at Grove HQ is pushing as one to create new history for this iconic team.

“It will take time, but everyone’s support is integral to help drive us towards success in the years to come. I’m looking forward to seeing what this season holds for us."
