New Williams FW45 makes its debut · RaceFans

Williams FW45, 2023

Williams have revealed their FW45 car with which they will compete in the 2023 Formula 1 world championship for the first time.

The team shared images of its car ahead of a shakedown run at Silverstone on Monday. Williams had previously unveiled its livery one week ago, including the announcement of a new long-term sponsorship from Gulf.

The new car features enlarged mirrors as per the new regulations and a raised floor as part of the FIA’s measures to reduce the aerodynamic porpoising many teams experienced with the ground effect cars last year.

Drivers Alexander Albon and rookie Logan Sargeant will both get behind the wheel of the FW45 during the shakedown run, in which they will be limited to a total of 17 laps of running. The car, like its rivals, will first run at representative speed for the first time during the sole pre-season test in Bahrain later this month.
