No Orlen said in their sponsor event a few days ago that they won’t be the title sponsor for Williams
Indeed. I think that was clear from the initial announcement. The placement/size of logos on the car certainly isn’t consistent with title sponsorship.

There were some distinct flashes of turquoise in the teaser video, so I wouldn’t be surprised if the 2019 colour scheme featured that colour prominently.

Are petronas a sponsor? Maybe Merc are pulling more influence over the team

Indeed, it does look like the Petronas colour. Helped by Russell being on the team perhaps?

ROKiT probably will be the main sponsor

I thought that metallic paint was hardly ever used in F1 because of its weight disadvantages compared to other types of paint?
Two stroke: a little more than half the power, twice as often.

McLaren have had metallic paint for years, fairly sure Mercedes do too. The Toro Rosso livery looks metallic to me as well.
In 2007 I had the chance to go to a meet-and-greet with an F1 test driver. I decided not to as I didn't think he'd even amount to much...he was the BMW Sauber test driver and his name was Sebastian Vettel...

I think that was the 'old' metallic, the 'new' metallic has Maylar flakes instead.

I heard it might be in 30min happening.

Still don't know if just livery, or also renders/pics of new car.

Yes, it is in half an hour from now. They said it is a livery unveiling, no words of the new car.
