Are you a Williams fan? You’ll be the envy of others with this hand-crafted table which uses a piece of Williams’ history.
This rear wing table has been re-engineered from a wind tunnel tested Williams FW27 F1 car which was used to develop the cars driven during the 2005 FIA Formula One World Championship™ by Mark Webber and Nick Heidfeld who finished in 10th and 11th place in the Driver Standings respectively.
This piece of F1 memorabilia features sponsorship branding from the 2005 season, and also comes with a certificate of authenticity.
How Wind Tunnels work
Wind tunnels allow all teams to test new parts ahead of a forthcoming event, not only testing the parts but also the mixed conditions, for example the rolling road in the tunnel has the ability to turn making it possible to test the parts in a cross wind situation and this allows the engineers to look at the data to see how the specific parts behave.
The wind tunnel is of paramount importance for development of an F1 car. Most teams now have a 60% scale model in the tunnel running wheels on, which means there is even more correlation to the real size car with real machined parts in both metal and carbon. There are tight restrictions on testing times for the teams so they have to make good use of the allocated time, that means understanding the real size car to then know where improvements need to be made so those parts can be tested in the wind tunnel to prove the concept; if that part doesn't work, then another part will be tried.
On the reverse of that, engineers need to understand the model characteristics to be able to build a competitive full-scale car at the beginning of each season. Some of the larger teams will be testing 2,000 plus parts a month.
