Check out a photo released by the Williams team this week:

That rear wing is just awful. I actually like the lower front wing, although I don’t like how it extends in front of the wheels, that’s going to cause more debris and more nosecone changes.
Admittedly this is the 2008 FW30 running 2009 aero, the configuration most teams are expected to run in the group tests next week, but still ugly! I hope that the definitive ’09 cars will be more in proportion and more in line with Autosport magazine’s mock-ups of a couple of weeks ago.
What do you think? Reckon we’ll get used to it?
Note that as it was only a shakedown neither the slicks or the current grooved tyres were used.
