We’ve already seen some spy shots of the Williams FW32 but we can now get a better look at the car as it appeared for the first time in testing today. Check out some more pictures of the Cosworth-powered Williams below.

The FW32 is another member of the ‘high-nose’ club but with some distinctively narrow struts from which the front wing is suspended.

Although its livery is more complete than the spy shots seen earlier – with Phillips now appearing on the sidepods as well as the rear wing – the front wing is still black in parts suggesting this is a recently-completed part which hasn’t been painted yet.

Another interesting detail on the car is what looks like a second air intake behind the main one.

The FW32 has its mirrors mounted on the side pod wings. They carry the logos of new sponsor GAC, a logistics company which will provide services to the team’s new technology base in Qatar.
