Williams and Caterham will have to redesign their Coanda exhaust solutions. FIA race director Charlie Whiting suggested that you allow no cover over the channel. The side walls of the shaft may not converge above.
That, Williams had thought beautiful. The engineers in Grove wanted to trick the regulations in the area of ​​the exhaust. They put the new FW35 over the Coanda a small cover, which in the middle having a slot. Thus, one could not speak of a closed cover as the Caterham CT03. Rumor had heard that Williams had picked up the blessings of the FIA. But this is not the case. FIA race director Charlie Whiting will not let the Williams-trick.

Williams-Auspuff ist laut Charlie Whiting nicht legal

While at Caterham is clear to everyone that the cover is contrary to regulations, we could be the new Williams divided. Charlie Whiting says, where is the mistake: "The side walls of the shaft must be vertical and must come together not above We do not even want that one of a tunnel even suggests Any cover, whether open or closed, violates them..."
The governing body know exactly what it would lead, if Williams were right. Then the entire bay would top dressed. A thin longitudinal slot would be enough to fool the rules. And that would be completely contrary to what purpose the rules. Williams technical director Mike Coughlan now know it. He was of the FIA ​​informed that they would not accept his exhaust solution.
