Williams FW33

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.

Hard to tell for sure but it looks like it has a pull-rod rear suspension. I think I can just make out the downward sloping rod when zoomed right in.

Rear looks very tight - not RB7 tight, but similar to the other 2011 cars.

Again it's hard to tell, but it looks like the car has a bit of a hybrid downward sloping side pods / tall tapered rear end going on.

That looks amazing. I can't tell you how much I miss a simple white roundel w/ driver number over top a single solid body color.

Me too, I've been wanting them to mandate this type of number decals for years. Hopefully it's not just for the interim livery.

Just in, Williams have confirmed that they are using pull rods.

Is it just me or is the rear wing mounted further forward than the rest of the cars? Compare the leading edge to that of the beam wing.

Loving the rear wish bones mounted to the RW support

Its just there to meet minimum bodywork dimensions. Redbull opted to keep a partial shark fin and high radiator exit to fill in this area. Most of the other teams including williams have needed to add the triangular legality fin.

Is Williams using flo-vis paint ala McLaren for aero visualisation??? I think they are.

I hope that's the permanent paintjob and not an interim.

pullrod as rb and merc?

they kept the "wings" on the nose; the rear wing is supported only by a central pillar ala Ferrari?
