FW32 – undernose splitter update at Bahrain


 

      Williams abandoned the front snow plough project under the nose , which was introduced last year and it is now used by Mc Laren MP4/25 , due to  the adaptation of the 2009’s Brawn BGP001 splitter design .  This splitter , which creates a kind of venturi effect under the car  , is inclined downwards to the rear  to accelerate the airflow under the car in an attempt to decrease further the under chassis pressure . An evolutionary step of the splitter design was introduced at Bahrain and specially the new design features a large middle slot (1) to allow part of the air to flow over the floor and towards the inner bargeboard-car body zone .

    It is worthy of mentioning that this part of the floor is an ideal place for mechanics to house blocks of heavy metal as ballast (2)
