Williams offer fans chance to choose their livery for Singapore, Japanese and Qatar Grands Prix

180,000 votes were cast for the four potential designs

Williams are offering fans the chance to pick a special one-off livery in their partner Gulf’s iconic colours, which will feature on their FW45 race cars at the Singapore, Japanese and Qatar Grands Prix later this season.

Williams have given fans the choice of four liveries, which include designs named ‘Bolder Than Bold’, ‘Contemporary’,’ Visionary’ and ‘Heritage’, all inspired by Gulf’s historic blue and orange colourway.

The design that is chosen will not just feature on the FW45, but also on the race suits worn by drivers Alex Albon and Logan Sargeant, as well as Williams’ social media feed throughout all three races.

There will be three rounds of voting, with round one starting on Friday, May 26. Following the final vote, the winner will be announced at the Williams stand at the Goodwood Festival of Speed event in the UK, where fans can see the livery up close.

“I’m excited to announce the livery vote as part of our partnership between Gulf and Williams Racing,” said Williams Team Principal James Vowles. “The winning livery will showcase two iconic motorsport brands coming together.
