Williams FW33-Forth and back with the new exhaust-floor package

 Old configuration 

       As expected Williams joined the group of teams to copy Red Bull floor exhaust outlet concept . The extended exhaust pipes are now driven towards the diffuser and housed inside the floor to maximize the effect of the hot emissions on the diffuser . The revised rear exhaust-floor package was fitted only in Barichello car during Chinese free runs . The system did not pay off the expectations of the team because it caused floor burning and as a result of it degradation of car’s aero performance .

  new configuration


        The new exhaust outlets were gone under revisions to overcome the floor overheating issues and  put under new test in Catalunya with the debut of the new package in race conditions taking place two races after in rainy Canada. Nevertheless for the next race in hot Valencia the cars were reverted back to the old package .
