Williams FW41 Speculation Thread

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.

Nope, the CAR is upside down.

This is why, when setting the car up in the pits, it's very important to connect the suspension links to the suspension, and the steering links to the steering rack, and not vise-versa.

Lower T-Wing could still feature on the Williams, shark fin could still be quite big:

Why do so many media outlets (e.g. sky) have Williams down as unknown launch date but we all believe it’s today?

I’ve just read his on Sky...

“Williams are hosting a '2018 season launch event' on Thursday February 15, although they are not expected to unveil their new car at the event”

Seems pretty pointless to me, a launch without a car, sound as exciting as a lunch without the food

To be fair their facebook page only states it as a season launch, not a car launch.
But I totally agree with you

Well that would suck.

Maybe they were hoping to get the jump on everyone surreptitiously but now Haas have blown that out of the water? Maybe they were hedging their bets in case the car wasn’t ready?

I guess we’ll find out soon enough!

Thinking about it, Weren't Williams rumoured to be the team who's chassis failed the Halo crash test? perhaps they had to have a change of plans and forgot to tell the fans about it

probably a 2017 car with a halo fitted to it, and the livery for 2018 including new sponsors, and their drivers, all in the outfits, liveries, helmets, numbers, etc. and without sharkfin and gilette razorblade on it.
and nothing really changes much regarding livery anyway, i'm confident the martini livery will be 100% the same as past 2 years. so yeah, majorly boring and pretty annoying.

i'd be surprised to see the blue return, and there has been zero mention of such a thing so not expecting anything like that, at all anyway.
Dumpster sounds so much more classy. It's the diamond of the cesspools.
