AirAsia on Thursday unveiled the world's first commercial Airbus A320 with a Formula One livery, the aircraft painted exactly like the Williams F1 car.
The plane, with its nose designed to look like Nico Rosberg's racing helmet, was named 'Sir Frank Williams' in tribute to the team principal.
"It has been incredible to see the AT&T Williams livery on AirAsia's plane," said Rosberg. "I'm delighted that the design of my helmet, which I have been racing with all my life, has been used to create a lasting tribute to the team's partnership with Air Asia."
Teammate Kazuki Nakajima added: "I am very impressed at how well the Williams Toyota FW30's design has translated to the SFW30 Airbus.
"I think we would all like to thank AirAsia for this great venture and we are proud to be associated with the Airline of the Year 2007. This is indeed a source of inspiration to both of us going into the Malaysian Grand Prix this weekend."
AirAsia has been a partner of the Williams team since April 2007.
