Of course there’s nothing of the new car in there... the new car will be in bits, to screw together in about May time... probably??!!PhillipM wrote: ↑Tue Feb 04, 2020 4:04 pmWorthless, you can hit the weight limit without much trouble at all, you'd just make any sort of work, setup, upgrades or repair a complete nightmare to save 3kg, not to mention probably double your mould/tooling costs.
Also the 7 post rig image is just a generic top down drawing from years back - it's only there as a visual guide after all, nothing in there of the new car.
Red Bull used a single piece engine cover for some while, but even they stepped away from that. I doubt any weight saving would be significant, or even noticible. Outside of that you add huge complexity, both in fabrication as well as shipping, setting up, building, crashing and anything else that requires you to handle the piece.
Didn't know that, thank you for your answer. So are other teams also running this setup, good pic are hard to find becouse the suspension is usualy not in open air like on this model?
This is how I see it
I agree, but this is the best look at this years car shape we have till now. Much better than the covered up chassis from McLaren where people are seeing that it has great rake angle and guessing the wheelbase.Lotus102 wrote: ↑Wed Feb 05, 2020 1:29 pm
After seeing some screengrabs with the shadows lifted, I think it probably is a model of the FW43, but it could be any stage of development from about last August, or a 'bitsa' incorporating elements from different specs. I still doubt it's particularly close to what we'll see in a couple of weeks, other than perhaps in general shape.
Yes. This is from the Perrin (centreline sketch which along with the roll geometry forms the planes of the wishbones) which is less aggressive than a proper car - but the two wishbones angle towards a point the distance and height of which defines the squat/dive characteristic. Not really my area of expertise so any more detail and I'd be struggling.
Lol, good point!
i would love to see Pepsi on the Williams the extra boost in sponsorship would help them with funding to develop their 2021 car this is the last year that team are not limited with the budget. Its probably not Pepsi but i hope a new sponsor has joined williams
