This is the new FW38 that will compete in this year’s Formula 1 world championship. The team believes it will be “a challenge” as it retains its position as the best of the rest behind Mercedes and Ferrari.
The iconic blue, red and white stripes of the Martini Racing colours once again appear on the car.
It seems to be an evolution on last year’s car, but hopefully the Mercedes-powered FW38 will have better performance.
Despite finishing third in the constructors’ championship in 2014 and 2015, Sir Frank Williams knows it will be a tall order to repeat this performance.
“Williams has started to cement our position back amongst the front-running teams after finishing third in the championship in the past two seasons,” he said.
“This has been a great achievement given the resources of those around us.
“Staying where we are will be a challenge in itself, but we are determined to keep improving because only winning will ever be good enough.
“We have a very stable team going into 2016, with Felipe and Valtteri teaming up for a third successive season.
“They work well together and both have the ideal blend of speed and consistency.
“Our technical team has also remained very consistent which will be to our advantage and we have some of the best engineering minds on the grid at our disposal.
“We have a busy couple of weeks of testing coming up to learn more about our package and to refine the car ahead of the first race.
“We will have to wait until Melbourne to find out exactly where we stand in the pecking order, but I’m confident that our hard work over the winter will stand us in good stead.”
