Williams FW26

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.

it's so obvious that they need more cooling for the hihest rev engine on the grid, look at their sidepods, its even lower that Ferrari's, how do u expect they get more air into it..???

Where's The Exit ??

Post

Excuse Me, Guys.. Can U show me exactly where's the sidepod exit is ? Is the hole behind the flick ups ? Cos I think I saw it when the car is viewed from behind. And What does the exit do ? Is it just for cooling or does it have any aerodynamical function ?

I Will Really Appreciate the answers, Thanks A Lot :D

HUGE BAR FAN (Sadly, I dont know Anything about the technical sede of F1).

Ok, they’ve just changed the pic of the day after the BAR shakedown, quite logical. Anyway from Akbar and Tomba comments I think I understand how the vent should look like (a sort of horizontal chimney on the sidepod lateral wall right ahead of the flipup :?: ), btw a pic would be better. I’ve rapidly surfed f1-live and f1racing.net but I’ve found just frontal views.

Tomba, I know that I’m a bit boring, but now I see a FW25, not a FW26... :(

Tomba, no one is to blame. I’ve directed my doubt to you just because you edited the original post and since I’ve never seen the original pic, I was a bit perplexed.
I don’t even want to blame Alex, it’s quite easy to mix up two cars having the same livery and also a similar design of the flip ups.
