The Williams team have decided to take measures following the incidents they've been involved in during the first three races of the 2001 season.
The BMW-powered cars of Ralf Schumacher and Juan Pablo Montoya saw how ther rivals crashed into the back of both of them at the Brazilian Grand Prix two weeks ago, something that also happened to Schumacher in Australia.
Following those accidents, the Grove-based team have decided to take a humourous approach for this weekend's San Marino Grand Prix and both their cars sported a "Keep your distance" sign on their rear wings during Friday's free practice sessions.
"We are not happy with what's happened in the last few races so we put the 'Keep Your Distance' on the car," said BMW's motorsport boss Gerhard Berger.
"We must hope that Rubens has learnt to read - if so we should be fine."
