It would seem as though Allianz, sponsor of the Williams team, have posted photos of the new livery that will adorn the FW31 car this season. On their Formula One site, they have put up nine images taken at the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve near Portimão in Portugal. The photographs depict a style not too far removed from Williams’s recent liveries, using blue and white as the base colours. The livery looks fantastic, although why the team do not just use their much loved testing livery is beyond me.
The livery was actually leaked over a week ago when F1Today.nl showed a picture of the Williams parked up in a garage with a different colour scheme to the one being used on the test car. It is unknown when Williams were intending to unveil the new livery, but thanks to their own sponsor, it would appear to have been leaked a little earlier than planned.
