Williams FW32 - rear brake ducts 07 November 2010

Williams' most recent version, as seen in Brazil, has been designed to recover as much downforce as possible and uses a series of fins (black arrows). The shape of the area between the rear tyres and the side channels of the diffuser (red arrow) is designed to receive air blowing from the car's exhausts.
