Williams has become the latest team to confirm its Formula 1 launch plans ahead of the 2023 season, announcing a date to unveil its new livery and driver line-up.

Williams announces date for F1 2023 livery unveil and season launch

Williams announced on Wednesday that it would be holding a season launch event on 6 February, making it the earliest unveil date of the six teams who have confirmed their plans so far.

The event will take place at 2pm UK time on 6 February via the Williams website and its app, during which the team will reveal its livery for the 2023 season.

The announcement made no mention of the team’s new car being presented at the launch, with the first proper look at the FW45 due to come at a later date.

The season launch will feature driver Alex Albon and new team-mate Logan Sargeant, who will make his F1 debut this year after graduating from Formula 2. Sargeant replaces Nicholas Latifi, who was dropped after three years with the team.

Williams is currently going through a number of internal changes following the departure of team principal Jost Capito and technical director FX Demaison last month, both having spent two years at Grove.

The team is yet to announce any replacements, but is looking to improve on finishing last in the 2022 constructors’ championship, scoring just eight points.

Why new look Haas is a litmus test for Formula 1’s new era

OPINION: With teams outside the top three having struggled in Formula 1 in recent seasons, the rules changes introduced in 2022 should have more of an impact this season. How well Haas does, as the poster child for the kind of team that F1 wanted to be able to challenge at the front, is crucial
