Williams and Toro Rosso take centre stage in latest F1 car unveilings

Williams have revealed a brand new look for 2019, whilst Toro Rosso continue with their successful colour scheme as both teams unveil their F1 2019 liveries.

With Williams ended their association with Martini at the end of last season, the team announced that telecommunications company ROKiT will be their title sponsor for 2019.

The change in sponsor has prompted a fresh livery, with the team going for a blend of light blue and white, with black accents on some of the more detailed aspects of the body work. The ROKiT logo features prominently across the car.

Note: Additional images to be shared if they become available.

Meanwhile, Toro Rosso released images of their 2019 car earlier today, releasing digital renderings of the STR14, complete with 2019-specification parts, although this is expected to still be some steps removed from the cars which will be seen in testing.

They continue with their dark royal blue and red livery, which proved popular with the fans when it was introduced for 2017.

Honda will continue with the team in 2019, having joined in 2018, and will also power the Red Bull Racing team. Toro Rosso will run with drivers Daniil Kvyat and Alexander Albon.

Why unseen Hungary heroics could be Latifi's making

The chaotic start to the Hungarian GP set the scene for F1's less heralded drivers to make a name for themselves.

The "heart-breaking" call that led to Ocon's Hungarian GP triumph

Set to restart the red-flagged Hungarian Grand Prix in second, Esteban Ocon had some doubts when he peeled into the pits to swap his intermediate tyres for slicks. But this "heart-breaking" call was vindicated in spectacular fashion as the Alpine driver staved off race-long pressure from Sebastian Vettel for a memorable maiden Formula 1 victory

How Red Bull endured its second car crash in two weeks

OPINION: Red Bull was justified to be upset that Lewis Hamilton survived his British GP clash with Max Verstappen and went on to win. But its attempts to lobby the FIA to reconsider the severity of Hamilton's in-race penalty were always likely to backfire, and have only succeeded in creating a PR disaster that will distract from its on-track efforts

OPINION: It wasn't just the Verstappen/Hamilton clash that had the Red Bull and Mercedes bosses at loggerheads at Silverstone, with the nature of Formula 1's 2025 engines also subject for disagreement. But hopes to have loud, emotive engines that are also environmentally friendly don't have to be opposed.
