Williams Racing has announced its planned Augmented Reality launch via a Smartphone app has now been canceled due to it being hacked.

“Williams Racing planned to reveal its 2021 challenger, the FW43B, via an augmented reality app later today,” reads the statement.

“However, sadly, because the app was hacked prior to launch, this will no longer be possible. We have subsequently removed the app from both the Apple App Store and Android Google Play store.

“We were very much looking forward to sharing this experience with our fans, particularly during this difficult time when being able to bring in-person experiences directly to our fans is sadly not possible. We can only apologize this has not been possible.

“Numerous other launch assets are available today, however, including rendered photography of the FW43B,” it concludes.
