Williams FW43

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.

They have begun copying Mercedes. Good sign.
Not driving a Mercedes? Work harder!

Probably not enough races to build a “one-race” spec part(s)... Similar to Mclaren last year, when they showed to Monza without a low downforce package.

When the funds are limited, you have to focus on what works in most races.

Williams tested a modified version of it´s barge boards during FP1.

It has a new connection to the chassis that seems to produce a bit of downwash to guide more air under the floor and to the diffusor. Also at the outer edge of the barge boards has some small modifications. The front vane has a slightly different conture at it´s front edge and the vertical strakes of the boomerang have a different angle at the lower end.
