  1. Interim livery? I’d say, keep this. It’s wonderful!

    They’ve managed to keep that car looking clean and simple without making it look… simple.

    I agree about the livery though, it looks lovely.. keep it!

  3. This is the year boys!!

  4. This is a really good looking car. Let’s hope that they can convert these good looks into results on the track.
    Here’s to a great 2009.

  5. Magnificent car, the most beautiful so far…about the livery I agree with you, it’s very cool, I wish they keep it for the races as well..

  6. this has to be one of the best looking cars for a long time….even with big wing/small wing syndrome

  7. Yes, stick with this one Mr Williams….

  8. very nice, i like…like it. I wreckon this should be used for races. Again very nice!

  9. gotta hand it to ferrari for providing a full 360 degree viewer online for everyone to see (f60.ferrariworld.com) what are these other teams doing releasing grainy photos out the front of a dark garage… i mean come on…

      If every team had the cash that Ferrari has, I’m sure they would. Williams has been cash strapped for some time and I’m sure they’re not better now in this economy. Their first priority is racing, the parties and everything else is secondary.

  10. Aye, a great looking car indeed – the sleekest of em all. I like the little concave curvature at the front of the nose…it’s like Nico sat on the mould or something!

    And I just seen the new Renault…which is without a doubt going to be the most hideous thing ever to set wheels on any track…ever!

    Looks great, not quite as tidy as the Ferrari but one of the best 2009 cars I’ve seen.
    I guess its nose is so big because they’ve reinforced it after breaking so many last year.

  13. why is williams’ interm livery alweays better than their boring final livery???

    If looks won races……

  15. Adrian said on 19th January 2009, 10:51

    Love it. 100% agree with thise saying they should use the “interim” livery for the races too…
