I’d say there’s enough material now to open the actual car thread.

The renders look like a FW41 with new front wing, new rear wing and different mirror position.
No difference at the sidepod area, i think.

So i'm guessing Williams haven't show anything of the FW42 yet ...

Just have a look on the "Rexona" logo. The sidepods got smaller, they moved some cooling parts upwards hence the smaller shark fin.

Some teams choose the same direction (f.e. Red Bull, McLaren)

Some teams did the opposit ... f.e. Ferrari (bigger shark fin, increased sidepod inlets)

The car looks pretty impressive; they’ll not mind the delay too much if the thing can perform out of the box (and yes I know looks mean nothing - last year’s seemed promising when launched).

The HALO is really blended in, with what appears more space towards the rear mounting points under the hoop for an aero effect.

It blends into the downwash of the sidepod.
