Williams has unveiled its 2015 Formula 1 car, the FW37, in the Jerez pit lane.

The Mercedes-powered squad was the first to reveal its 2015 car last week, releasing a series of pre-rendered images online, but officially rolled out the FW37 on Sunday morning, ahead of the start of testing.

The team’s new car is clearly an evolution of its previous design, but it does feature a new nose, which is unique amongst the current grid.

The team’s driver line-up is unchanged, with Felipe Massa and Valtteri Bottas both retained after an excellent season in 2014, when the team finished third in the constructors’ championship.

“After such a strong season in 2014 we are looking to continue the move back towards the front of the grid,” said team principal and founder Frank Williams.

“The move from ninth to third was a tough challenge, but ultimately every step up from now on will be even harder. I am confident that we have the appropriate personnel and talent in this team to make those steps.

‘We have an experienced driver line-up, with both drivers finishing on the podium throughout last year and hungry for more success in 2015, new commercial partners to add to the continued support from our already impressive roster, and have a technical team that is amongst the best on the grid.

“I am looking forward to seeing the car in testing and assessing how other teams have fared over the winter in comparison to us. We should, once again, have a very exciting season ahead of us which will hopefully bring more success to Williams.”

Bottas will debut the Williams on Sunday, completing two days of running before handing over to Massa for the final two days of the opening test.
