Williams invite fans to choose which special Gulf livery they will race · RaceFans
Williams have unveiled four potential Gulf liveries and invited fans to vote for which of them they will run at this year’s Singapore, Japanese and Qatar grands prix.
After Gulf joined Williams as a major sponsor at the start of the 2023 season, the team hinted at the possibility of running the oil company’s famous sky blue and orange colour scheme as their main livery colours. Gulf previously did the same at the 2021 Monaco Grand Prix when they were a sponsor of McLaren.
Williams have confirmed they will run Gulf’s colours on their livery later this season at the Singapore, Japan and Qatar rounds towards the end of the season. The team have revealed four potential designs that fans will be allowed to vote on, with the most popular design being what the team will race with in all three rounds.
Three rounds of voting will begin later today on the Williams team website with the final winning design announced in July.
Team principal James Vowles said the livery vote was a celebration of “two iconic motorsport brands coming together.”
“Our fans have the opportunity to create motorsport history with their livery decision, bringing this partnership to life,” Vowles said. “I can’t wait to see the winning design and watch the Williams Racing fans cheering the team on.”
Several other teams have modified their liveries for special races this year. Alpine began the 2023 season running in an all-pink design in honour of title sponsors BWT during the opening three races of the season in Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and Australia.
In Miami Red Bull ran its first of three slightly modified liveries designed by fans which it will use at the American rounds. McLaren has a special livery again for this weekend’s Monaco Grand Prix, commemorating its wins in the three ‘triple crown’ races.
