Shaver brand Philips has increased its sponsorship of the Williams team to include on-car branding next year, the Grove based squad announced on Thursday.

Following the semi-works engine deal with Toyota and AT&T title sponsorship for 2007, it is another piece of good news for the beleaguered former champions led by team boss Sir Frank Williams.

He said: “We’re delighted that our partnership has been sufficiently successful to grow, extend and increase the programme.”

Of the eleven teams to contest the 2006 constructors’ championship, Williams finished eighth.
