Ok this is actually really funny, but take it with a grain of salt cause it comes from a friend of a friend that's related to ferrari.
So this 3D model that was in the app and was ripped IS THE ACTUAL CAD 3D MODEL IN HIGH DETAIL. FIA has sent an official notice to all the other F1 teams that they are not allowed to have this model on the PCs and that it is considered espionage, so someone at Williams was """smart"""enough to upload the ACTUAL CAR in a high grade 3D model in an unencrypted state. =D>

good lord that's some level of screwing up #-o #-o #-o

If the teams are smart, they're now gonna get some personel asked to go home, buy a laptop, and study the CAD models thoroughly. Even if the car is trash, you can still learn a lot from it. And, if for some reason the car actually turns out to be miraculously 'good', in the sense that they outperform Haas, then Haas can learn a lot from this material for example.

Speaking of which - they're not buying Mercedes' rear suspension like AMR are doing, are they? If that was the case they'd probably be facing a lawsuit on top of the embarrassment.
They are but only starting from 2022 so this is not the merc rear end.

I guess they needed better glasses after making such a huge f=up :P

Anyway, good to see a new sponsor aboard.
Very weird to use a really old F1 car as the backdrop.

Yeah, that's a lot of screw up indeed. Imagine how now everyone in F1 at other teams who might have downloaded the app because they are into F1 have to make sure they fully get rid of it, maybe even having to reset phones to make sure nothing of this competitor's IP remains, man, the person at Williams tech who allowed PR access to the actual CAS model surely hasn't made friends in high places of F1.

This is still a team in trouble. Nissany is having one of the 3 limited pre-season test days doesn't send out a positive message. Their reserve driver Jack Aitkin would have been the logical choice in lieu of Latifi and Russell if a 3rd driver had to be run.

Williams apparently say it harks back to their title-winning cars of the 80's and 90's. I'll have to take their word for it.

The worst looking Williams would surely be the 2019 one. But this one comes in a close second imo.

Note: Tweet from fake account!

Anyway, it was gonna be williams or haas, haas seemed unlikely, and with that odd livery they put out it really isn't that surprising.

Either way, IF THIS IS TRUE , then Williams then are a bunch of filthy liars

https://formula1news.co.uk/f1-teams-den ... ch-energy/
F1 Teams Deny Holding Sponsorship Talks With Rich Energy

The Williams F1 Team flatly denied holding any discussions with Rich Energy about a sponsorship deal or a partnership in another capacity.

Specifically, Williams told Formula1News.co.uk that they “have had no communication with Rich Energy at all and are not in any discussion regarding a potential sponsorship.”
Yeah, that's the last ounce of respect i had for the team.
This is a mess, this team would have been better off 'dying' and rebooting under a new name.
now the -already abused and ruined- legacy is going to get 'violated' even further.

Well atleast we know the livery Williams will be running in 2022 when they become a full-on title sponsor, as claimed before.

**edit:

just checked, this is a FAKE account on twitter, it's not actually RICH energy themselves.
must be a internet troll
