With Nigel Mansell, winner of the Formula One World Championship with Williams Grand Prix Racing in 1992, as the brand ambassador for the Williams branded paint protection programme, two of the iconic names of Grand Prix have been brought together again.
In addition to his Formula One success over a 15 year period, Mansell is the only driver to hold both the F1 and CART Series titles at the same time, having switched successfully to CART racing in the year following his 1992 World Championship.
For a generation of people, Nigel Mansell is all about performance and determination.
His tenacity and bravery were impressive and it is these attributes that make him an iconic and highly appropriate brand champion for the Williams paint protection range.
The Williams 2015/2016 drivers are Felipe Massa & Valtteri Bottas.
