Welcome to Martini Williams

The Williams team and Martini unveiled their colours and union today.

“We are thrilled to welcome Martini to the Williams family and officially launch Williams Martini Racing,” said Sir Frank Williams.

“Williams and Martini share a rich history in the world of motorsport, and the values of our two brands and our shared passion for racing make this partnership a natural fit. It will be great to see the distinctive stripes of Martini Racing return to Formula 1 once again in unison with Williams.”


Red Bull still struggling

14 Laps, that’s all that Sabastian Vettel got in yesterday in the Red Bull.

Renault and Red Bull both said that they had fixed their issues, but it seems that’s not the case, the car covered less than 100km yesterday, and basically only got going in the afternoon after missing most of the morning session.

“Obviously we’re not happy with where we are now and we have a long way ahead of us, The first gut feeling from the car is OK, but we need more running. It’s not easy to find a quick fix, but I think we understand the problems. We sorted out the issues from Jerez and we were able to do some laps today.
