Re: Spanish Two day In Season Test

With the two-day in-season test at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya concluding on Wednesday, Russell confirmed Williams would run a number of experimental items as part of long-term planning for car development rather than instant performance gains.
“No, there are no massive upgrades, just bringing some test updates to the car and focusing on the last half of the year.”

That's actually good news to me. Scrap the FW42 as a performance item. The only reasonable use this POS has is as a test bed for next year. And not a very good one either, but at least the team isn't wasting money on reviving this car at the expense of next year (or the year after that, at this rate...).

I wonder what those experimental items are... Maybe some new gear that helps them measure what's wrong with the car. Pictures show a beam from the tip of the beam wing in front of the sidepod to somewhere in the bargeboard area. Hadn't seen it before. Maybe the car is bending. Maybe the flow through there is messed up. Maybe its maybelline. Who knows. I wonder if Williams do.
