Williams Racing today launched FW44 their 2022 car with the new livery. The 2022 car flaunted the blue which the Williams is known for with a hint of racing red which honoured its British heritage.
Williams Racing was founded by legend Sir Frank Williams and is now owned by Dorilton Capital. Williams stepped out of F1 in 2020 after posing heavy financial losses.
2022 can be the season that Williams needed. After constantly getting last place in standings Williams the legendary name needed something different. The 2022 new regulation could actually be the chance to bring back the glory of Williams Racing which they once had.
The new show car which Williams used to showcase their new livery surely made many people’s heads turn. The striking blue and the hint of red surely complemented each other.

Williams Racing: 2022 a Season to look out for
“Over its history as an iconic Formula 1 team, Williams Racing has shown great strength and sophistication,” said Team Principal Jost Capito. “The new visual identity of the 2022 car perfectly encapsulates these characteristics that the staff, drivers and fans have demonstrated time and time again.
“As we move into the new era of our sport, the FW44 highlights the transition to the future, as well as acknowledging the timeless qualities that make us who we are. Last season we were thrilled and proud to make such strong advancements as a team, with a number of well-earned points-scoring results in addition to a podium.
“Looking forward, we want to build on this success, and the FW44 perfectly embodies these ambitions to return to the front of the grid. I look forward to witnessing this progression with Nicholas and Alex at the helm.”
“I’m a fan of the new livery. Keeping the blue was important as it’s synonymous with Williams Racing, but it’s a pattern we’ve not seen before and the fluorescent red will pop on track which I really like.Nicholas Latifi
“It’s a fresh new look to start off the new era of F1. I’m super excited for testing in Barcelona, to get back behind the wheel, push and see what the car can do. Pre-season always feels like quite a long time, but it’s been really busy and there’s been a nice build-up at the factory with lots of hard work from everyone.
“The new regulations should allow for much better racing so I’m excited about the challenge and we will aim to gather some good data from testing, to take us into the first few races.”
The FW44 livery is clean and simple. I like that we’ve gone for more blue with the dynamic diamond finish and a little bit of red; it looks really good and I’m looking forward to seeing it out on track.Alex Albon
“The upcoming Barcelona track session will be about making sure we’re efficient with our time to best ensure we have a competitive package heading into the season. We don’t have many days before our first race and so we quickly need to understand which areas of the car are strong and where we need to make improvements.
“I’m sure it will be a little bit of a learning curve as we all try to learn how to get the most out of the new regulations, but the objectives and the way that we focus on this car is very much the same as in previous years. Ultimately, we’re all still trying to get a racing car around a track as quickly as possible.”
