Williams FW33 - exhaust positioning 16 April 2011

Williams have brought a new Red Bull-inspired exhaust to China (main picture). To adopt the solution, the British team have had to modify the system's positioning in similar style to that seen on the Ferrari. With just one set of parts available, Rubens Barrichello was initially chosen to sample it in practice, whilst team mate Pastor Maldonado kept the standard layout (inset) on his car. However, for qualifying and race Barrichello reverted to the old solution due to the new system causing problems burning bodywork.
