The design of the FW41, which has more corners compared to last year’s race car, can be credited to Technical Chief Paddy Lowe. Easily seen changes include the addition of the Halo safety device and smaller rear fin. Meanwhile, its black lower half hides most of its aerodynamic secrets.
Aside from its upgraded exterior, the Williams Technical Chief also said that there are a number of radical changes made inside to incorporate the power unit from Mercedes.
As for who will be driving the new FW41, Williams has the youngest driver pair this 2018 season with Lance Stroll just 19 years old and Sergey Sirotkin at 22. Fortunately, they can rely on the experience of grand prix winner Robert Kubica for advice.
Williams finished fifth in the Constructor’s Championship last season for the second year in a row. Will the rejuvenated driver line-up and new FW41 be enough to climb higher in the standings this year? We have a little over a month to find out as the 2018 Formula 1 season starts on March 26 in Australia.
