Williams FW31's unique airbox inlet

By on

Williams' new FW31 is a very elegant design and ahead of schedule as the team started its development earlier than most of its rivals. One of these details is the addition of 2 air inlets - one on each side of the airbox - to catch cooling air for the hydraulics.

Last year, the team mimicked Ferrari's idea of splitting the airbox itself in two, but the team have now apparently found a better solution. The result is also that the main airbox inlet could now be made smaller, something that is always helpful around the turbulent area of the driver's helmet.
