The new season at Williams will see a new driver pairing at the helm of their team, Nicholas Latifi will be racing another season for them while George Russell, heading to Mercedes, will be replaced by Alex Albon. The British-Thai driver will be returning to the sport after a year of being on the sidelines as a reserve driver for RedBull and its sister team Alpha Tauri.
The car has been designed under the leadership of Francois-Xavier Demaison, who joins the team as its Technical Director. The incoming technical director was previously working with Volkswagen on their World Rally Championship programme.
