Williams racing team, which has Brazilian Felipe Massa as race driver and Felipe Nasr as test driver, has revealed its new livery for the 2014 Formula 1 season last week.
In white, blue and red, the FW36’s beautiful design features an interesting and unusual detail on its nose cone: the “Ayrton Senna Sempre” (“Ayrton Senna Always”) seal – the official logo designed by Ayrton Senna Institute to mark 20 years without the Brazilian three-time champion.
“It’s our way of celebrating his achievements as a racing driver, and also the sterling work of his foundation which is doing so much to promote educational opportunities in Brazil,” said team Williams founder and team principal, Sir Frank Williams.
The team has been honoring the Brazilian driver since 1995, placing Senna’s stylized double S on all Williams’ cars. The team’s official debut will take place on Friday, March 14th, during the practice sessions for the season’s first Grand Prix, in Australia, at the Albert Park race track. The race will take place on Sunday, at 3 A.M. (BRT). Globo TV will broadcast it live.
