Bottas spills beans on FW35

THE SAME, BUT DIFFERENT: The 2013 car willl be a development version of the 2012 edition according to Williams F1 driver Valtteri Bottas.

LONDON, England - Valtteri Bottas has revealed that Williams' 2013 car will not feature a 'stepped' nose.

Following the public's reaction to the aesthetics of 2013's cars, the FIA has allowed teams to install a "structurally irrelevant" laminate over the step for 2013.
The 'modesty panel', however, is not mandatory, and that's raised doubts about whether teams will take up the option.

Bottas, Williams' rookie driver for 2013, told Finnish broadcaster MTV3: "As far as looks, the 2013 car is pretty much as it was in 2012. With the new rules, the step nose is straightened. That is the biggest difference in appearance.

The new car is a development version of that of 2012. There are certain improvements in aerodynamics. We have tried to focus on getting more traction in corners."

He didn't know whether he or Pastor Maldonado, Williams' continuing Venezuelan driver, would give the FW35 its track debut at Jerez early in February 2013.

"Pastor and I will share all the test dates, so six days each," the Finn said.
