Last week’s news, but who’s honestly tired of looking at the Williams Martini Racing FW36?
In what became one of Formula 1’s worst kept secrets, motor racing’s most iconic sponsor has made their much anticipated return with Williams.

It’s a definite bright spot on a 2014 Formula 1 story line that keeps getting more interesting as the weeks progress. The teams have already made their long awaited return to Melbourne for the start of the season, less than 1 week away.
Williams have struggled to attain their former glory in Formula 1 for many years now and after a rough patch with loan shark pay driver Pastor Maldonado, 2014 may be the year to see them return to their former glory. Williams have already been called the dark horse of 2014 and yes it’s still early, but you can’t deny that Mercedes engines are the performance benchmark this season and with Felipe Massa’s fresh new outlook, things could be in their favor. Bottas already made an impression as one of the most interesting young drivers in the sport and it might not be long before we see podium finishes for the team once again.
They’ll be doing in in stunning style. The FW36 is without a doubt the best looking car on the grid this season. Lets hope Martini’s return will inspire other former sponsors and classic liveries to reenter the sport.
The Australian Grand Prix is just 6 days away!
