Following the lead of Aston Martin and Red Bull (as discussed here previously) Williams are the latest team to follow the trend of super-drilled brake callipers. These were introduced on the FW45 in Melbourne and were raced by both Alex Albon and Logan Sargeant.

When compared to the traditional style undrilled callipers on the current Ferrari, it can be seen how much more extensively they are drilled around the area where the calliper is clamping the pads to the brake disc.
