Williams F1 executive director Toto Wolff has hailed the team's Partner Day at Silverstone a 'tremendous success'.
The event took place on Wednesday this week and was a chance for 'friends' of the Grove-based outfit to enjoy an 'exclusive day of access all areas activities' and for team personnel to personally thank them for their continued support.
It was hosted in Silverstone's new Wing Complex overlooking the International Pits straight, with guests treated to a drive around the famous circuit in a Renault Sports car by the team's drivers, a pit-stop challenge, and a full-size F1 car simulator challenge.
One of the day's highlights was Williams F1 development driver Susie Wolff
driving the FW33, her first time at the wheel of a F1 car. Other highlights included Pastor Maldonado, Bruno Senna and Valtteri Bottas driving two of the most legendary cars in Williams' history - the FW08 that took Keke Rosberg to the driver's title in 1983 and the FW18 that saw Damon Hill clinch the championship in 1996.
“Today was a tremendous success and I would like to thank all of our partners from across the world for turning out in their hundreds. A team like ours is reliant on a loyal collection of sponsors and we're lucky to enjoy strong relationships with some fantastic companies,” said executive director, Toto Wolff.
