They didn't have anything for sale with the 2019 livery or "ROKiT" or what have you. They did have discounted 2018 shirts and caps, including items with "Sergey Sirotkin" and "Lance Stroll" across them. Did they only sign the new sponsor like, on Tuesday evening or something? So the ROKiT site is not up and running to any significant degree, and no current stuff available to buy on the Williams site. The team may show up to race in Australia wearing t-shirts and bluejeans.
Making it hard to be a true blue fan!! Hope the ROKiT check cleared before they painted the damn car.
Alternatively, they’ve been working on it for the best part of a year, and with all the thousands of variable in play including a new set of regs they’ve come in within three days of the deadline they set themselves. They obviously pushed the design time to the wire - understandable as they had further to catch up than anyone else - and weren’t the only team to do that anyway. Last year they and McLaren got their cars out for the first day and by the end of it were obviously in big trouble. I don’t see a reason to start doom-mongering yet. It’s times on the clock that count.
We've not seen the car yet how can you say it looks weak? So far we've seen last years car with a new paintjob and a 3d render produced by the art department deliberately to hide innovations. All of the renders from all the teams which have been released look different to the cars we've seen from shakedowns and filming days. The actual car will likely be evolutionary as well as adapting bits from more successful teams, but they all do that.McMika98 wrote: ↑Sun Feb 17, 2019 12:23 pmIts not like their concept car is revolutionary, if anything it is one of the weakest looking car laking any innovative features to speak of. They had a full year to get the car and still cannot avert the disaster. Guess they will stay at the back of the field.
That was an thoroughly enjoyable read, thanks.ScottB wrote: ↑Fri Feb 15, 2019 7:37 pmhttps://medium.com/@jonrowlandson/desig ... 15931be026
The concept for the final livery came directly from Gene Haas.
