Williams has announced a new partnership with data protection firm Acronis.

The company will provide its data backup, storage and synchronisation technologies to the team.

Acronis, founded in 2003 by Russian businessman Serguei Beloussov, were previously sponsors of Toro Rosso.

“Technical innovation is at the heart of everything we do at Williams and with that comes a crucial need to protect our data,” said deputy team principal Claire Williams.

“Acronis will protect Williams’ on-premise and cloud service data with backup, disaster recovery, and secure file sync and share solutions.”

Williams is due to be the first team to launch its new car for 2018 on Thursday.

A new Williams sponsor says the deal with the British team is not connected with the arrival of Russian driver Sergey Sirotkin.

Earlier, Russian software company Acronis backed Daniil Kvyat at Toro Rosso, but that money is now moving over to Williams.

But Acronis boss Serguei Beloussov insisted: "We started negotiating with Williams much earlier.

"Sergey was part of Renault and he could have stayed there or gone to Toro Rosso," he told the Russian source Championat.

"Our agreements do not depend on Sergey's contract. Of course, the fact that he is at Williams is a plus and meant we preferred Williams," Beloussov added.

Sirotkin is heavily backed by the Russian bank-run SMP Racing programme.

Seat time crucial for Kubica as FP1 drives confirmed

Robert Kubica says it is crucial he gets seat time in the 2018 Williams car as part of his role as reserve and development driver, after confirming he will take part in three FP1 sessions.

At the launch of the Williams FW41 in London, Kubica revealed he will drive in FP1 in Spain, Austria and Abu Dhabi this season alongside testing outings. With the Pole also set to drive during preseason testing in Barcelona, Kubica says he needs time in the new car to be able to help push development in the right direction.

"I will do three FP1s, I will do some preseason testing and in-season testing," Kubica said. "I felt in order to participate and to supply the best job I can deliver it was important for me to have a chance to drive. Because the current regulations for F1 testing is very limited, the simulator plays a very important role and because I'm part of this project it's important for me to build up a relationship between reality and the simulator in order to use this tool as best as we can in the future.

"It needs to be developed but still the guys in the factory are pushing really hard so I think everybody is looking forward to seeing what the new car is capable of. But from the start of the season there is a big job to be done in the factory and I'm happy to be a part of it."

With much more experience than the two race drivers, Kubica admits he will need to help both Lance Stroll and Sergey Sirotkin at times but suggested he won't try and get too involved unless asked.

"The new role will be completely different. It's a bit of a mix of what I was doing in 2006 with BMW, although at that point Formula 1 regulations were much more open for testing, so a reserve driver and third driver was much more active. But still I will have a chance to drive quite a lot based on what is allowed by regulation.

"There will be a lot of work in the simulator at the factory, trying to support the team if the guys need some help or I can help them it will be more than welcome. Of course they have to do their job and I for sure will try to support but I will never be in a position to teach them unless they think I can help."

Meni nikako ne ide u glavu kako ce ulaziti/izlaziti iz bolida, ovo uopste nije prakticno za slucaj nuzde. Uz to, ne znam kako funkcionise Kubicina ruka, al kontam da je njemu jos veca patnja uci u ovaj boli. Sve mi se vise cini da se ovaj Halo nece dugo zadrzati u F1

Navodno jedan od uslova da se ovo prihvati je bilo da vozaci mogu da napuste bolid u 5 sekundi. Jbmliga.

Znam, zato mi je i cudno, ne deluje mi kao da je moguce napustiti bolid za tako kratko vreme, a pogotovo mi deluje kao nemoguca misija kada se bolid izvrne naopako

Kad se izvrne, nema šanse da izadju! Lično, ni malo mi se ne sviđa.

Malo sporije u poređenju s bolidom bez oreola ali ide, ako bi ugao nagiba bio veći vozač ni s niti bez oreola ne bi mogao izaći. Zašto više ne prihvatite oreol takakv kakav jeste? F1 je sport koji se uvek menja i meni lično niš ne smeta, uvalim se u udobnu stolicu/fotelju i pratim najbrži cirkus.
