Williams unveil stunning livery at 2023 Singapore GP

180,000 Williams fans voted on which special livery they wanted the British team to use at the next three events.

Ahead of this weekend’s Singapore Grand Prix, Williams have unveiled their striking special livery for the next three races, as voted for by their fans.

In cooperation with sponsor Gulf Oil International, Williams held a vote earlier in the season where fans had to choose their favourite special livery from four designs, with the most voted for design being used this weekend at the Singapore Grand Prix, next weekend at the Japanese Grand Prix and then at the returning Qatar Grand Prix next month.

The winning livery was unveiled during the summer, but it’s officially been seen in the paddock for the first time.

Fans voted for Williams to use the ‘Bolder Than Bold’ special livery, which is made up entirely of Gulf Oil’s company colours (orange and blue).

Incredibly, 180,000 fans voted on which livery they wanted the Grove-based team to use, with Williams bow set to “deliver a historic moment” in their partnership with Gulf Oil.

“Williams Racing is delighted to unveil the bespoke Williams Racing x Gulf Oil International fan voted livery ‘Bolder Than Bold’, which the team is showcasing at the 2023 Singapore, Japanese and Qatar Grands Prix,” a Williams statement read.

“An enormous 180,000 votes were cast across the closely fought competition, which was designed to celebrate the spirit of two iconic motorsport brands and is poised to deliver an historic moment on the track.

“This livery celebrates the boldness of those determined to make their mark, keep progressing and pushing boundaries.

“It embodies more than just being brave, heroic, or fearless. It represents an unwavering commitment to never giving up and always approaching challenges with confidence. Gulf and Williams Racing share a resolute belief in being bold on and off the track.”

Williams will be hoping that the special design comes with a special result on Sunday at the demanding Marina Bay Circuit, where both the drivers and the cars are pushed to their limits.

This is because of the high heat and humidity which the drivers face in Singapore, something which is amplified with it being a night race.

Last season’s Singapore GP marked Alex Albon’s return to racing following his appendicitis scare, which saw Nyck de Vries take his place at the Italian Grand Prix.

Albon has been sensationally this season and is responsible for all of Williams’ points, something which is increasing the pressure on rookie Logan Sargeant.
