Williams has announced a new partnership with Dicastal, a manufacturer of automotive wheels and part of the Citic Group. In its technical partnership with Williams, Dicastal’s wheels will go through vigorous R&D with Williams Martini Racing before on track product testing begins in 2017.
Commenting on the partnership, Nelson Wang, chief executive officer of Dicastal said; “Our team members are excited to partner with Williams. The spirit of Formula One will inspire us to become more competitive, innovative and self-challenging.

Claire Williams, Deputy Team Principal and Commercial Director of Williams, added; “Here at Williams, we are always looking for the slightest advantage to edge out the competition, and light weighting is fundamental to that. As an organisation, Dicastal’s dedication to engineering excellence perfectly matches our own and we look forward to working together.”
