The Grove-based outfit has split with title sponsor ROKit, and hence has revamped its color scheme. They revealed its first look yesterday, with the official launch taking place today. Its driver George Russel and Nicholas Latifi have branded the color scheme ‘smart’.
The revamped white-and-blue livery features increased branding Canadian company Sofina, and technology company Acronis.
The front of the rear wing features the Williams name, with expectation that it would be replaced with the name of the new prime sponsor.

Rokit has also confirmed its split with Williams won’t have any impact on its title partnerships with Venturi in Formula E and the W Series.
Deputy team principal Claire Williams spoke on their future prospects, and sounded optimistic.
“Williams has always done a good job of attracting new partners into our sport, into our team and I believe and have every confidence that we will continue to do so.
“This is a great brand. It is a great team. And we’re on a very exciting journey.”
