Williams FW26 - illegal brake ducts 13 June 2004

Williams, like Toyota, were excluded because their front brake ducts were too wide. Under the rules no part of the duct could be more than 120mm away from a line parallel to the inner side of the wheel - Williams exceeded it by around 30mm, which would definitely have improved their braking efficiency relative to the opposition.
