Williams extend ROKiT for a further two years

While Haas are trying to figure whether they have a title sponsor, Williams have announced that ROKiT have extended their deal from three to five years.

Having lost Martini at the end of last season, Williams were quick to sign a title sponsor for 2019 in the form of telecommunication company ROKiT.

Although Williams are only half way through the first year of what was initially a three year deal, they announced on Thursday that it had been extended by a further two seasons.

Williams billed the extension as a ‘commitment between the two companies and a stable base from which to deliver the partnership’s strategic goals.’

Deputy team boss Claire Williams said: “We are delighted to announce this extension to our partnership with ROKiT.

“As I said in February, this is a natural partnership based on shared values of innovation, engineering excellence and trust.

“ROKiT joined the team at a challenging time and it means a great deal to us that they believe in our vision and are committed to helping us achieve it.

“I’ve personally enjoyed working with the team at ROKiT and look forward to continuing this work in the years ahead.”

Jonathan Kendrick, Chairman of ROKiT, added: “Our relationship with the Williams Racing team supports our position as a global player in the mobile phone industry, entertainment and drinks business.

“We have exciting plans to produce exclusive ROKiT Williams Racing content for our ROKiT phones, as well as strong distribution for ABK and Bogarts.

“I am also committed to helping the team get back onto the podium, where they should be.”
