Williams on Thursday revealed the livery for its 2011 car, the FW33.
In all navy blue, the car has already been extensively tested this winter in Spain.
The race livery, featuring more white than usual, was shown for the first time from the British team’s Oxfordshire headquarters.
The design, particularly from the side where the familiar shapes and familiar red line is visible, strongly reminded nostalgic observers of the team’s famous Rothmans liveries of the 90s.
Rubens Barrichello did not attend the launch after receiving permission to stay in Brazil for his wedding anniversary.
