Is that image from today or yesterday? I thought their launch was today...
That's a render from Williams social media, it was originally grey, someone just painted it with "official" colour. We'll see if those rumours are true.

I'd only we could get back the 2008 front spoon wings, these cars would look amazing....

To me, it looks like the FW41 with a new frontwing and new mirrors ... not like a "new" car.

For example the sidepods and the roll hoop seem to be identical.

I didn't realize the front wings could be so complex.

I assumed everybody would look like the new STR.

The blue really messes up the livery

It is the FW41. The long vanes at the inside of the front wheels in front of the brake air ducts aren't allowed anymore.

This was scheduled as a livery presentation not the new car. We would not see the new Williams until testing

Team kit. It looks much better than the livery that's for sure.

T-shirt on drivers looks better than car's livery. The White and blue combination loses vs Black-Blue :(

I'm puzzled and confused. Williams, always with their pretty liveries, and now this:
- it doesn't appear to be the same color blue on the kit and car
- the strong lines on the kit are in contrast to the paintbrush effect on the car

It seems a bit rushed if you ask me, hopefully they'll fix it.

The car doesn't look that dreadful.. just that two-tone gradient on the nose that's a very bad idea.
