New problems: Williams leaves Rexon

New problems: Williams leaves Rexon thumbnail

The problems of the legendary Williams F1 squad are not over, as the Grove team has lost another major sponsor.

After his personal sponsor, Polish oil company PKN Orlen, went along with Robert Kubica to Alfa Romeo, at the beginning of the new year Williams leaves the company Rexona, one of the most prominent sponsors of Williams in recent years.

Rexon is expected to contribute 15 millions of dollars a year to the Williams box office, making Australia's deodorant maker the second largest sponsor of Williams F1 teams.

Williams also recently left Symantec, Omnitude and Tata, and the Grove team will seek to cover the losses with billionaire Michael Latifi, the father of new racer Nicholas Latifi.
