Williams FW41 Mercedes

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.

Interesting little bits of info in here.
1. Already talking about the big upgrade for Spain. I wonder if it's simply rhetoric or they really will bring a big package.
2. I don't remember anyone talking about turn in issues with the FW40! Maybe I missed that, but if true, then would the issue be less Aero as there is not much carried over in this Dept (aside from one version of the front wing they used in testing), and more mechanical?

The case is made of titanium, not aluminium as previously thought.

Overheating for Williams, overheating for Mercedes. Seems to be particularly exaggerated when running behind another car. Williams did shrink their side pods considerably from last year, but it doesn't seem like that's the reason.
And they call it a stall. A STALL!

Bottas seemed to think it was a cooling configuration error - I.e. they probably should have run a bit more cooling for the conditions. I guess it’s something the conditions in Barcelona really gave them very little useful data on.

Will be interesting to see if the Mercedes engined cars will therefore be a bit more conservative in their packaging in Bahrain. That said, Lewis was very close to Vettel for a long time prior to dropping back to cool off, so it can’t have affected them that badly.
