Williams pace this season has been fantastic but to keep that momentum going and keep up the fight with Ferrari the team know they must continue to make gains.  With this in mind the team arrived in Japan with a new svelt engine cover.  As we know the cooling configuration run by Williams is like no other with a rather large exit at the base of the engine cover, whilst another cover resides over the gearbox/suspension etc.  The new cover retains its predecessors outline but is decreased in size, owing to the lower cooling demands of a circuit like Suzuka.  This streamlining is further evident with the engine/gearbox mountings visible from the tightly wrapped bodywork, which look like blisters. (Circled below).  As we can see the perforated gurney trim which runs around the periphery of the cooling exit has also been retained, aiding in the extraction of hot air.
