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.

But did you SERIOUSLY expect them to not be there? They would have been given exemption 2 weeks ago otherwise.

well to be honest, the throught did cross my mind they might not be there.
in regards to the possibility not being able to present a legal car.

them being present to me suggests they have atleast brought a car that is legal.
that to me, is good news, as the situation seems critical enough that Williams very
existance might be under scrutiny.

next up though, is what they will do. They'll have to participate in official race entries,
so qualifying must happen. does the 107% rule still exist?
if so, if the lap is 1:20, they must not put in a laptime slower than 1:25,6. seeing they were 2,5 seconds
off the pace in barcelona that should be achievable.

if they start the race in melbourne, and don't return to the pits and park their cars immediately after the start,
to me, there is hope and positivity.

so yes, i think that bad of williams current situation. which is, to be clear, the very opposite of what i'd wish for.

Lots of detail in the middle of the car

Hope they work on perfecting it by adding small modifications to it till the European season

Hope they bridge the gap with just refinement over the next 2 months

They are anyway soo far behind, losing a small, quantifiable extra bit to be sure they won't have to worry about cooling, might not be a bad choice.
