    It’s a very gaunt-looking car. When I look at it, I think of skin pulled tightly over bone. There’s not an ounce of fat on it, but there’s not much meat, either.

    Nose reminds me a bit of the Walrus design.

    • I came here to post that. In fact, all the teams seem to have gone for a walrus style nose attachment. So even though we all mocked Williams when they first put that on, it must have been (the combination with) the rest of the car that made it slow, rather than the design itself. Interesting to see how that works out this year.

      Perhaps Williams will have a slightly larger database to work from about how that particular nose works and they might be able to work out how it works in combination with the new tyres a tad quicker as a result. A nice thought, although perhaps not entirely realistic, I admit :)

    Seems like Williams is the only team that is doing live timing.

    Going by a couple of Twitter feeds, Williams will be running a “retro” livery in 2011. Read into that what you will …

    The whole car is very interesting, especially the rear (or lack of it!). No one here seems to have noticed that the rear suspension connects to the rear wing support!

    Interesting idea just underneath the air-intake.

    The rear wing design looks strikingly similar to the Ferrari…hmmmm.
