No Martini branding on Williams in Bahrain

Contrary to expectations, the Williams FW36, in action at Bahrain International Circuit, did not feature branding or new Martini Racing livery.

Instead it was the all navy blue Williams which emerged from the Sakhir pit garage, with Felipe Massa in the cockpit.

Also missing was Petrobras branding, despite the announcement a day earlier [Tuesday] that the two organisations had struck a three year sponsorship deal.

An announcement regarding the Martini-Williams partnership is reportedly imminent, so much so that ahead of this edition of testing speculation was rife that the new livery would make its first public appearance in Bahrain. (GP247)

    Well that was a pointless article. Williams have already said they will show their livery on the run up to Melbourne and not for the tests!

    LOL! Good catch!
