Indeed, it looks as though the sidepod itself is even shorter and more aggressively ‘ramped’ than the Red Bull, though the engine cover is significantly bulkier. Last year’s car was apparently a bit over-cooled, so they had a fair bit of potential to tighten things up.f1rules wrote: ↑Mon Feb 17, 2020 9:34 amwell somehow they always produce "bold" cars, i think its nice looking, different to many, they went all in slimming the sidepods+inlet with very aggressive ramp for then to sacrify a slim engine cover and making it rather fat, but the heat needs to be handled somewhere so only logical with those sidepods
Yes, many older Williams cars have the same characteristic since 2014. I wonder if that big belly around the engine act like an expansion chamber for the air the exits the rads
When I looked at the top down view i thought it may be a little wider/bloated than the other midfield teams but then this picture eased the concerns somewhat.zibby43 wrote: ↑Mon Feb 17, 2020 9:04 amhttps://twitter.com/WilliamsRacing/stat ... 15334?s=20
Now at least they have the exits pointing down, giving some space for the air under the wing.ScrewCaptain27 wrote: ↑Mon Feb 17, 2020 10:41 am
Very tight from the cockpit to the beginning of the rear suspension, with the mentioned exception of the sidepod width as such.
