I spoted something interesting looking at the new livery photos. The pitot tube for measuring air velocity over the car is missing. It was located between the ears on the nose. It will be interesting to see if it comes back come race weekend.

This is a render, so may not be 100% accurate with what the car will look like in Austria.

Hi guy
We are back racing at last.
Pre season testing we were about 8th or 9th quickest maybe.
Can we see any changes on the car now at all from the new livery pics?
It seemed to me from testing we are still short on good honest down force and still a bit bulky?
the rest of the car seemed quite neutral on track from what we read and saw.

From what I remember of the car at testing there are no visible aero upgrades on this car. It has been confirmed though that Williams will have upgrades when the car hits the track in Austria.

The team need to get as much performance on this car before the lock for next year is activated so I hope to see the team being brave with development items to test in the early races.

Sort of worries me a bit that Dave Robson was taking about reliability and did not mention performance in his statement in the teams GP preview. For me I would rather see a quick car that is not perfect in terms of reliability. At least it will show that there is hope for the future.

True.

Reliability is almost worthless if you don't have a car that can score points on merit regularly.

Robson saying reliable and raceable

Do you think this means they have have made some quite big changes underneath the
covers, maybe cooling plus other stuff and aero?

or maybe even lightened various parts?

You're right Tomazy, what the actual @#$%& is that outlet doing on the FW43? Is this one of the new upgrades Claire was talking about?

Really? Granted, I don't have a very trained eye, but I'm not seeing it. The image from the side of the back suggest a rather tight fitting.

Thanks for the fantastic pictures in any case!

I would venture a guess that this track is quite heat specific. And thus may need advanced cooling.
Who knows what solutions team have for extreme cooling this season.

I'm not sure what you're over reacting to but the clear photo of the rear of the car showed that they are using the rounded head exits this weekend that wed seen in pre season testing.

Higligheted in green the car with the huge exit, the blue is where the testing exit was.

the testing exit from Austria, they have difirent configurations for difirent weather conditions, I hope that the big one is just in case, or even that a part of the bodywork is missing?

The bottom photo is the one I have seen. It's hard to tell on the photo above it. Perhaps they are running the engine cover for data for warmer circuits if it is larger. Could just be a trick angle

Not a trick angle... engine cover different from a HIGH RES shot showing of bodywork ending below the top wishbone of the read suspension.
