Do you think Williams will have a good season? But their deal with the Grove-based team expired after the 2018 season, and they revealed even before the season began that they would not renew it.

Williams announced this news on their Twitter page with a short video.

"Jonathan is a big fan of HP sauce, and he said to me when he was flying in, "I'm going to need a bacon roll with some HP sauce", she recounted.

"From my perspective, I wanted a livery that told a story and told a story about where Williams is and the future that we believe it has", said deputy team boss Claire Williams. "We share many similar values and aspirations with ROKiT; primarily putting engineering and innovation at the core of everything we do in our pursuit to be the best - the flawless platform from which to start a partnership", Deputy Team Principal Claire Williams said. Taking that path together will make us both stronger in our endeavours and so I can't wait to get started'.

Here is what Jonathan Kendrick, the chairman of ROK Brands, had to say about the matter, according to RACER.

Claire Williams claims she would have been sacked if father and boss Frank had not liked the paint job on the Williams F1 team's latest cars. With them we can bring Formula One to audiences in new and pioneering ways.

The partnership, revealed during a special event held at Williams Racing HQ, will see the Formula One team renamed RoKit Willams Racing.

For this year British rookie George Russell teams up with Robert Kubica, who will be back on the grid for the first time since 2010 following a horror rally crash that nearly claimed his life.

The British team slumped to last in the constructors' championship in 2018 after a revival from 2014-2017 in which it finished in the top five each year and scored 15 podiums.

Kendrick's close affiliation with Formula One and Williams started, aged 17, with Goodyear Racing in Wolverhampton, before securing the European rights of the then unknown Yokohama Tyres, ahead of moving into audio-visual innovation for mobile phones. Will ROKiT Williams Racing bounce back from arguably their worst season in team history?
