The updates Williams hopes will lead to a point-scoring return
After producing a car which demonstrated progress but lacked the points to prove it last year, Williams starts its new era of team ownership with the FW43B, its bid to continue the climb up the Formula 1 grid in 2021
Oh, to be a fly on the wall in the Williams livery design department. It's not hard to imagine a mood board consisting of the 1989 Coloni C3, Birmingham City's 1992-93 kit and Chase Elliott's 2018 NAPA-liveried Camaro, given it seems they've all merged to produce the Grove squad's new Formula 1 livery with a hint of TV static.
Williams' new livery is admittedly very Marmite indeed, looking like Salvador Dali's interpretation of an early-2000s Sauber. The FW43B sadly loses the neat white and blue garnish for something that resembles three liveries in one, perhaps covering up the lack of sponsorship adorning the car for the new season aside from the Nicholas Latifi-affiliated businesses peppering the livery.

Jonathan Noble ponders that exact point
The Brabham BT46B raced once, won once, then vanished – or did it? STUART CODLING reveals the story of the car which was never actually banned…
Formula 1’s visits to Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya over recent years have been met with familiar criticisms despite tweaks here and there to the track to improve racing. With the 2021 Spanish Grand Prix largely going the same way, proper solutions need to be followed to achieve F1’s wider targets
Often described as Formula 1's laboratory, the Circuit de Catalunya-Barcelona gave the clearest demonstration yet of the pecking order in 2021. And it's the key discrepancies from that order which illuminate who is excelling, and who needs to hit the reset button.
An aggressive first corner move from Max Verstappen appeared to have set the Red Bull driver on course for victory in the Spanish Grand Prix. But canny strategy from Mercedes - combined with the absence of Red Bull's number two from the lead group - allowed Lewis Hamilton to pull off a demoralising reversal
Lewis Hamilton led the way in Friday practice for the 2021 Spanish Grand Prix, but there was one major encouraging sign for Red Bull. However, making good on that gain will require Max Verstappen to avoid repeating a mistake that left him well down the FP2 order...
