British independent formula one team Williams has confirmed reports it will not stage a traditional launch event for the unveiling of its 2009 car.

As was the case this year, the Oxfordshire based outfit will simply roll its new single seater, the Toyota-powered FW31, onto a winter test circuit some time in January without fanfare.

The car's final livery will then be shown publicly in late February, prior to the season opening Australian grand prix in late March.
