dunno' if I can get your meaning right or not...but I think you're talking about early rear diffuser in 2001.I remember they crashed into rear of our cars because this part was called "to kill the downforce of rear car"...they changed the part for race 4 or 5.

It was at Imola after Verstappen hit Montoya on the back while he was on the way of his first Gp win in Brazil

Actually, speaking of rear wings this question has annoyed me for quite some time.

If I recall correctly the other teams complained about Williams have HP Invent on the rear wing and so it changed to BMW Power. Can anyone remember why it was complained about???

I can't recall that Beatrix myself.

If I remember correctly they only put BMW Power on the rear side of the rear wing from 2001

in 2000, it had 11880.com on it

2000 Upto FRA 2002 they had Compaq on the front, changing to HP logos for GBR 2002

I think there was something about the HP logo not being visable enough, so they changed it to the invent tagline from 2003

at EUR 2005, they changed it to HP invent

Hehe, good one - completely forgot about that.

I liked what BMW did with Villeneuve's rear wing on first race after he got married. Too bad it said ''Just married'' just for the Friday Practice.
