Williams FW41 Mercedes

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.

Also I failed to notice but Ferrari and HAAs seem to have much better winglets towards sidepod for directing fresh air from top of the chassis. They have only this lower longish one

Well, I think we can safely say that the suggested influence of the teams on the aestetics of the halo is not becoming a reality. Lovely livery but man.. what a hideous thing that bar, ruins the whole car.

Tbf, this was kind of expected since its Dirk de Beer's first true car for Williams having come from Ferrari. The SF-70H was also his car.

Mercedes snowplough, Mercedes barge boards, Ferrari sidepods and sidepod deflector.

well that's interesting.

also reminds me of Senna's Mclaren somehow, probably due to the blacked out part from the nose to the sidepods.
i am curious to this car's results, actually. even if i thoroughly dislike their race driver pairing.

halo should have been black imho.

also the nose is nearly identical to the fw40 imho. i expected more honestly after the initial reports on it's agressiveness and being different.

If Haas bought everything what it was possible from Ferrari, could be that Willilams did the same from Mercedes. Could they bought some 2017 parts from Mercedes, while they are their engine customer?
