Oris has been an Official Partner of the prestigious Williams Formula One racing team since 2003. The two companies share many values such as their independence, a strive for precision in the most meticulous details and a passionate team of people dedicated to achieving extraordinary results.
The Williams Mercedes FW36 is one of the most technologically advanced Formula One cars produced by Williams. It is a culmination of more than two years research and development by the team’s technical departments in Grove and it incorporates the power unit from the team’s new partner, Mercedes-Benz.
From the very start of the season, this latest development shows great promise. The drivers have secured an impressive starting grid of 4th position or even better in 6 races so far. Valtteri Bottas, Oris ambassador, went on to achieve his best ever season with five magnificent podium finishes. As the last race of the season approaches, the Team hopes to maintain its third placing in the Constructors title, ahead of Ferrari and McLaren.
Oris’ Executive Chairman, Ulrich W. Herzog commented: “We would like to congratulate all drivers and the whole Williams Martini Racing Team for their fantastic achievement. It was a highly demanding season with the team making a huge effort, which has certainly paid off. To see the team’s hard work result in a success like this makes us very proud to be a long term major sponsor.”
