Rich Energy 2021 landing spots: No. 2 – Williams

Williams are also an option for Rich Energy should they be returning to Formula 1 in a title sponsorship capacity, or anything remotely similar to that, in 2021.

The Grove-based team need the money following three consecutive last place finishes in the constructor standings. Over the last two seasons, they have scored just one point, and they went scoreless in 2020 despite actually making some progress.

Williams were sold to United States-based private investment firm Dorilton Capital during the 2020 season, and they will be looking to continue on with that progress.

There were rumors that they were going to cut Mercedes junior George Russell in favor of a driver with more funding to pair with the heavily backed Nicholas Latifi for 2021. While they shot those rumors down, it’s no secret that they are looking for additional funding.

Provided they actually have the money, Rich Energy could be the perfect go-to partner.

Additionally, Rich Energy had made it known in 2020 that they were supposedly interested in returning to Formula 1 as a sponsor of Williams, even going as far as posting a photoshopped image of a Rich Energy-Williams car on their Twitter page.

Let’s also not forget the fact that the two parties did make contact about a potential 2019 deal back in 2018 before Rich Energy ultimately went with Haas.

But what if it’s not Williams?
