Looks like tiny fighter jet wings before the sidepods. Nose bump doesn't look too pronounced either, but that might just be the angle.

Yeah from some angles you don't really notice the nose bump on the Caterham as much. I read the jet wings are part of the crash structure, but help aerodynamics.

Reports say Rory Byrne is the man behind the jet wings.

Williams FW34 to be launched at Jerez

Jan.31 (PVM) Williams announced today that they will be unveiling their 2012 Formula 1 challenger, the Williams-Renault FW34, on the morning of the first day of official pre-season testing at Jerez de la Frontera.

The team announced in a brief statement: “The Williams F1 Team will present its 2012 Williams-Renault FW34 on Tuesday 7 February at the Jerez de la Frontera circuit in Spain. The car will be rolled out of the garage for a photocall with drivers Pastor Maldonado and Bruno Senna between 0830 and 0840.”

The team will be embarking on their 34th year in Formula 1, having competed in 558 races during this time and in the process notched up 113 race victories, nine constructors’ titles, and seven drivers’ championships.

Last year was their worst season to date, finishing ninth in the title championship standings, with a mere five points to their credit.

Apart from Toro Rosso, the Grive based team will be fielding the least experienced (combined) driver line-up on the grid with Maldonado and Senna.
