Williams to race with a special livery in Austin

By on

Williams have shown off an eye-catching one-off livery that will adorn their FW45 challenger during this weekend's United States Grand Prix in Austin.

The British outfit have revealed their special livery for the United States Grand Prix, celebrating the team’s strong U.S. connections and the support of both new and existing partners. The livery features the U.S. Stars and Stripes flag on the engine cover, a rear wing NFT takeover by Kraken, and a newly added MyProtein sidepod logo following the announcement of Williams Racing and THG’s partnership.

Speaking of the Texas race weekend, Alex Albon said: I’m very excited to be heading back to Austin; it’s one of the best tracks of the year in terms of atmosphere and the fans. It also feels almost like another home race for the team and will be exciting for Logan to return home once again this year. We have another sprint race format, so it will be important to be on the pace early in the weekend, with limited practice. Either way, I’m exciting to go racing at this circuit, as it’s got a great flow to it.

Ahead of his first United States Grand Prix, home hero Logan Sargeant commented: I’m so excited to get back on track especially in front of the home crowd this weekend. Austin is one of my favourite cities in the world.

"The Circuit of the Americas is special place for me as it’s where I was officially announced as a Williams Racing Academy Driver in 2021 and, last year, where I made my FP1 debut. To now be racing there will be extra special. Having previous experience of driving the track is helpful with it being a Sprint weekend. Hopefully we can have a good one and put on a show for the fans.
