Williams FW42

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 looks like there are parts missing from the barge board lower area. Is that a wing element on the lower rear arm or the tie rod? The tie rod is there, just hidden from view.

not expecting super build quality for a delayed car but this really looks quite a bit more advanced than last years contender. Let's hope it has some speed.

The car looks somehow ... "better than expected"

Front wing is different than the others.

They copied the raised front suspension

The shape of the sidepods remind me a bit to last years Mercedes

Pretty standard looking front wing with a small cutout on the upper back side of the endplate. Actually, has a small turning area on the top outer section.

Two rear wing swan mounts. Mirrors have a slight wrap around them with the mount/wing.

How do they get away with the little flap on the trailing edge of the lower-wishbone? Thought each suspension arm had to be single section with axis +/- 5 deg from horizontal.

I like it, but just don't understand the legality.

Wow totally different from the renders of course! I am watching live on F1 TV...so much detail on the car...too much information...just like last year I think!! Hopefully they will get their aero to work properly!
- That high front suspension is nothing like any other team...looks more like the rear suspension of Ferrari! =D>
- Smaller sidepods with even smaller inlets...their shape looks like Mercedes's 2018 sidepods but a bit sharper!
- Front Wing something in between Mercedes and Ferrari (just like their whole car)
- Rear wing looks huge and a bit simple compared to other teams

To me it seems like Williams is trying to copy the best concepts from the whole grid and combine them into one car! That was the case in 2018...the car looked half Mercedes, half Ferrari! :?
Hopefully the will be closer to the midfield and not dead last 3 secs off the pace... [-o<
