2021 will be a completely new year for Williams. The British team went through a series of upsetting changes but it hopes it did everything for the best, to show some improved performances and let George Russell shine on.
The Grove-based team in 2020 proved to be resilient. It changed the team and the sponsor, it said goodbye to its creator, Sir Frank Williams and its team leader Claire and embraced every news with spirit and strength. The only ones who remain were the three drivers. Another big change has been to admit Jenson Button back in F1, this time as an advisor and a leader. The time has come to show the new creature too: it’s going to be named FW43B, as the “plan A” was the single seater that was projected previously and which is going to be admired on the next season.
“Get this date in your diaries”, warns on Twitter the Williams Racing team, revealing that the launch will be on the 5th March 2021.

,As the start of the season has been delayed to the end of March, due to the usual Coronavirus pandemics, the teams are enjoying the longer winter break to project and develop the new cars more carefully, as they had to invent this new project anew.
Williams has a strong and glorious past and the present has been quite deceiving. Now they have the chance to go through a new birth and aspire to strong performances. The drivers has all that it takes, especially Russell who shone on during the GP with Mercedes, but there is to say that the team is quite new and it will need time to adjust to the new status

Will the “Plan B” be the best option? Only the Bahrain track will tell and we can’t wait for it to arrive and the 5th of March to be there to admire Williams’ new baby.
