It’s been rumoured for sometime that the final 2011 Williams livery would be a retrotastic effort, the question being, which era would they go with – there are so many great Williams liveries that whatever it would be, it would be great …well, as long as they didn’t mean the Winfield era of cars.

…thankfully they didn’t and here’s the ‘new’ livery for 2011 – paying homage to the 1996-ish era of Hill and Villeneuve.

It’s very much a remake of the Rothmans livery and that’s a good thing.  Hopefully, for Williams it will also mark a return of those championship winning days.
