Williams will unveil its new 2020 Formula 1 livery, following its split with former title sponsor ROKiT, on Friday morning.

The termination of the ROKiT deal was announced at the end of May at the same time as Williams revealed its board was reviewing “various options” including the potential sale of the whole company, new investment or divesting a minority or majority stake.

The team trailed the launch of its new livery with a social media video of race drivers George Russell and Nicholas Latifi, and reserve Jack Aitken, looking at unseen images of the new scheme and variously describing it as “sharp”, “clean and fresh”, and “smart”.

Williams has not yet made clear whether it will be announcing a new title partner for 2020.

Deputy team principal Claire Williams said in the wake of the review announcement that the squad was “fully funded throughout the remainder of this year”.

Williams goes into 2020 having finished last in the constructors’ championship for the past two F1 seasons, but having hinted during winter testing that it was no longer cut adrift at the back of the pack as it had been last year.
