Martini to return with Williams

Martini could return to Formula One as Williams' title sponsor for the 2014 Championship.

Martini were last involved in Formula One back in 2008 when the company was a minor sponsor of the Ferrari team.

However, after five years away from the sport, the company is now set to return.

According to Autosport, it is just a matter of time before Williams announce Martini as their official title sponsor, bringing the white, blue and red colour scheme back to F1.

"Sources have revealed that an agreement has been reached that will result in a full rebranding of the Williams car," reports autosport.com.

"Martini's decision to go with Williams followed talks with a number of leading teams, including McLaren and Ferrari, about a sponsorship deal.

"In the end Martini decided that the attraction of a title deal - with the team set to become Williams Martini Racing - and the prospect of a full-branding opportunity were too good to resist."
