Williams FW32 Cosworth

A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter does not belong here.

I could be wrong but doesn't look too low on downforce. THe main plane though looks like they took it off an earlier Renault fw

Williams, Renault, McLaren, RedBull, I love how some teams really turn their front wings into pieces of art that look very complicated. Yet Ferrari chooses to run a clean 2 or 3 flap wing with no fuzz on it.

Maybe the aero guys at Ferrari have contracts/job security already for another few years so they don't feel the pressure to make intricate and complex parts, but the other teams want their aero guys to do something serious to get those pay checks.

Effective simplicity. Less is more. What could be better? (And I'll bet the aero guys at Ferrari ARE under pressure to create an effective overall aero solution.)

Mmmm I can't see a slot, I can see a green thing on top and a shadow on the side but no slot.

Did you mean the green bit? I'd assume it was a temerature indicating strip. As the rads/exhaust are in the area.

I think he means the one close to the cockpit. If so it would be a hot air escape.

This car is looking genuinely fast now that the season is coming to an end, hopefully they can continue this form with the FW33.
