Of primary consequence is any change to the fundamental technical parameters enforced by regulation updates for 2002. While a number of key areas will be affected by the new regulations, designers have not been forced to completely return to the drawing board in the same way that the move to narrower track width and grooved tyres demanded in 1998.

In the absence of wholesale regulation changes, the design team at WilliamsF1 did however have to embrace a completely new BMW engine, the P82, which in turn required the development of a new gearbox, and associated changes to the remainder of the drivetrain.

The P82 consists of almost 5,000 individual parts, around 1,000 of them different. All core components are developed and manufactured at BMW - such as the cylinder head, crankcase, crankshaft, camshaft or electronic engine management.
