A computer-generated rendering of the car was released on 23 January, showing an extended nosecone dubbed the "anteater".

The team will compete under the name "Williams Martini Racing" after securing title sponsorship from the Martini & Rossi distillery, making the FW36 the first Formula One car to compete in Martini Racing colours since 1979.
