Sidepod Swush Williams WF25 F1 car.
Converted into a design lamp
Because BMW had complaints about the FW24, the new 2003 car is a complete new design, although there are several similarities between this car and its predecessor. The car struggled to find pace in the opening races of the season and made BMW rethink its future in Formula One.
By the time the team went to Monaco, Michelin had developed a new wider front tyre that was meant to unleash the full potential of Montoya and the Williams car. The car immediately won that race, scored a double-podium at the Canadian Grand Prix, then go on to score dominant 1-2 victories at the European Grand Prix at Nurburgring, and the next race, the French Grand Prix at Magny-Cours.
