ROKiT Williams Racing and Mercedes-Benz have confirmed an extension to their power unit partnership. The new deal will see Williams receive Mercedes-Benz power units until the end of the 2025 FIA Formula One World Championship season.
Williams has been in partnership with Mercedes-Benz since the start of the 2014 season. The team will continue to be supplied with Mercedes-Benz’ ICE and energy recovery system by Mercedes-AMG High Performance Powertrains (HPP) based in Brixworth, UK. Williams will continue to manufacture its own transmission.
“Mercedes-Benz has been one of the sport’s most successful engine suppliers and we believe that they will continue to have an extremely competitive engine package going forwards,” said Claire Williams, deputy team principal.
Toto Wolff, CEO and team principal of Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport added:
“I am certain that the outlook for independent teams is bright under the financial regulations that will be introduced from 2021 and we are delighted to continue our partnership with Williams into that new era of our sport.”
