Former Williams sponsor RoKIT has initiated proceedings to bring the British outfit back to court in a case in which it is seeking a $149 million compensation for damages to its reputation.
Williams and its former commercial partner have been at legal loggerheads since 2020.
The Grove-based outfit brought the telecommunications company founded by Jonathan Kendrick onboard as its title-sponsor ahead of the start of the 2019 season.
Mid-way through that year’s campaign, the two partners agreed on an extension of their deal to the end of 2023.

But in May 2020, just a month before the start of F1’s Covid-impacted season, Williams suddenly terminated its sponsorship deal with ROKiT.
It appeared at the time that Williams had cause to do so as its partner had not fulfilled its contractual obligations and had withheld several payments.
