Williams FW34 Renault

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.

But wouldn't most drivers when they move teams change the button/paddle layout anyways?

Anyone catch the interview of Pastor Maldanado in the race bays on Sky Sports News???

The airbox looks like an evolution of the FW33, with a deep undercut, but revised "support" struts. They are less straight and more McLaren/Ferrari eske in sculpture.

I think this is 2011 car because of the high nose. but I may be wrong.

I think maybe it's the FW32 with the one wing mirror.

I think it's the new FW34
Looks like it has white cascades, the FW33 had black ones

Although I have just been told that's the car to practice pit stops, which would make sense as there's tyres and pit equipment around it

Nice one, I wouldn't say there's a lot to see here really but nice to get a glimpse of the 2012 car.

The nose is redbull style and lower.. check it out: the 2011 car has a flat table top nose.. this one has those redbull ridges and is stepped.. it must be the 2012 car. ?????

The nose has been that Red Bull-esque shape for the past 2 years due to the camera placement... and it's too high for a 2012 nose. No team has had a complete tabletop for many years, they all droop down to some degree at the nose cone. So it's either the 2011 car / 2010 car in 2011 livery. The front wing looks quite basic, but I'd say its 1 of the earlier 2011 wings IMO
