Mike O’Driscoll, Executive Director: “The financial results for the 2018th show another strong year for Williams. Our revenues have grown as from the activities in Formula 1, and from the activities of Williams Advanced Engineering.
With the team of Formula 1 were associated with high expectations, because we expected four years of payment of large prizes for the results in the Cup of designers in the past. Unfortunately, last season was difficult, and we could not maintain the high rate of modernization of the machine.
There is a big difference between the leading teams and everyone else, but we very much look forward to long-term plans for Liberty Media, thanks to which all teams will have equal opportunities for competition. At the same time, we aim to increase our own results, despite the difficult start of the season.
We are pleased to start cooperation with the new title sponsor of ROKiT and partners from Orlen. Contracting demonstrates the strength of the Williams brand.
In 2018, Williams Advanced Engineering continued its revenue growth, although this growth was insignificant, as we continue to invest in employees and technical equipment. Our experience in electrification and the use of ultralight materials provides excellent opportunities for further growth. ”
