Williams FW42

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.

Probably titanium, Renault used to use a titanium upper wishbone too.

A few mistakes in your pictures. On the bottom pic, both images are from Silverstone, as both cars have the new vain under the sidepod intake and on top of it. On the upper picture, Williams stopped using the suspension that it is stated to be from Austria allready in Canada. But, nice catch, the susspension in Silverstone was indeed diffirent in the race, I have missed that. Chacking the pictures, Kubica did test the new suspension on friday, and probably didn't like it so he went back to the old one. Here is a picture from friday, car #88 with the new susspension.

I wonder what did they change, the rubber shroud looks so bulky now, and maybe the upper wishbone is attached to the wheel a bit further back?

True, the two photos are from Silverstone. I knew it, but I wanted to point out only the differences in the front suspension.
Anyway I have replaced the "problematic image" by the picture of my yesterday afternoon tweet:

I did not know this information. Sorry. There are very few images of the FW42 in each race

Awesome picture of that impressive radiator/intercooler design. I think I posted a question here a few years ago asking why the radiator's aren't curved to help with packaging and I was told (If I remember correctly) that it couldn't be done, due to manufacturing and or design difficulties.

Im wondering when they'll start 3d printing the radiators, to make even more extreme shapes :D
But maybe you can't really 3d print aluminium ....
