Williams are set to unveil their 2023 challenger on February 6, in an event hosted by F1 presenter Will Buxton.

With Haas having kicked-off the 2023 launch season on Tuesday, several more launches are set to take place in rapid fashion, starting with Red Bull’s on Friday.

Following Red Bull’s launch on February 3 is Williams, who will reveal their 2023 challenger and potentially a new livery on February 6.

As always, fans have created concept designs as to what they think, or at least hope the Grove-based outfit’s 2023 car will look like.

A theme amongst many is a design that includes the famous colours of Gulf Oil, following speculation that the company are set to join Williams for the 2023 campaign.

Gulf Oil have teased about a return to F1 on their social media channels since announcing their departure from McLaren at the end of last season, with Williams seemingly being the most likely partner for the company.

With that in mind, one Reddit user has shown their concept design for Williams’ 2023 challenger, with it including the famous Gulf Oil colours.

As mentioned, all will be discovered next Monday, with the team set to unveil their new car as well as who’ll be in the 2023 Williams Driver Academy.

The team’s newest driver, Logan Sargeant, has been promoted from the academy into the team’s second seat, after acquiring the necessary super licence points last season in Formula 2.

The Williams Driver Academy graduate is “super excited” for his rookie season and has been “working really hard” during the winter, to the point where he feels like the season “has already started”.

“I’m doing my best to enjoy every part of this process because I know how much of a challenge this year is going to be, to make the step up in physicality that an F1 car demands, but this is what I’ve been working towards for years,” Sargeant said, per Williams Racing.

“I have to make sure I can be in the best shape possible and I have huge motivation to work really hard towards that.

“At this stage of the year, under two months out from Bahrain, I’m working to keep my body in a good condition generally and maintain my overall strength.

“We’re also working really hard on cardio; doing a lot of running and high-intensity workouts.

“Then, as you can imagine, we’re doing a lot of neck and core work as those two are connected and continuing to strengthen those up for the Gs that are coming.

“Now the date for our 2023 Season Launch has been announced, I’m super excited, even though I feel like my season has already started!”
