    Two things, I don't believe the Williams released image is the complete package. And that video is a load of tosh.

    There will be A LOT of aero sandbagging in my view. I think we will see the very baseline chassis' and that the eagle eyes watching on track and the pit lane will seek out the detailed aero solutions that these teams are trying.

    Absolutely no one will want to let a cat out the bag in terms of things they think will give them a performance edge.

    yeah, it looks racey, but I can't understand why they would release photos before the launch, it makes no sense.

    Double dose of publicity. That car and it's sponsors are going going to be looked at and analysed without competition until next week.

    Still has a willy.

    Also the video looks similar to the fake mclaren one. I don't know what's real and what's fake anymore

    We only really know whats what when it comes to FP1, in terms of packages and performance. For now it's all guesswork.
    You can tell near to nothing looking at that Williams image.

    The perhaps overlooked livery story of the season could come from Torro Rosso. There are rumours that they will run the sugar free Red Bull scheme, which is a lighter shade of blue and has the potential to look absolutely stunning if they get it right.

    Wonder if they could pull off a matte finish too. Their car excited me in this aero formula. Can anyone confirm if they have the 2017 Renault PU?

    hmm, they sucked that idea out of my head. A sky blue, similar to leyton-house, would look pretty cool, about time the grid had a big splash of colour.

    Very nice indeed. Though someone should have told them that the traditional colour of a 25 year anniversary is silver not gold but ill let that one fly

    It's beautiful, one of the most attractive liveries of the past few years. I just wished they painted the shark-fin, and Saubers lack of sponsorship showing again.

    Shame they still haven't fully fixed the noses. Otherwise that would be a contender on the all time list for beautiful cars.

    Is it me or does this hark back to the old Rothmans Williams Renault in the 90s- that beautiful blue white and gold. Fantastic.

    I wonder if the fin might well end up painted, particularly if they have any new sponsors. Against a black background it looks good, but on track the black is surely going to look odd.
