Williams isn’t going anywhere. That’s the gist of what team principal James Vowles has to say. Chatting with GPBlog and others, he made it clear. No need for panic about a name change with a sponsor tagged on.

Ever since the Williams family handed over the reins to Dorilton Capital, there’s been chatter. Could the iconic name change? Vowles’ response? A resounding no. “Williams is a massive brand, especially in motorsports, and definitely in the UK,” he pointed out. And he’s not alone in this sentiment. Neither he nor Dorilton have any intention of altering the name. Why mess with something that means so much? Frank’s legacy, after all, is something they carry forward, evident even in the team’s livery.

### Vowles loves Williams

For Vowles, Williams isn’t just any team. It’s the team. Having witnessed them clinch championships nine times, his connection runs deep. “Legacy isn’t just about titles,” he says. “It’s about growth, belief, and the global community rallying behind you.” Williams was his first love in the racing world. And he’s adamant about preserving its name. In his eyes, it’s a source of strength, not a liability.
