Bring Back V10s: How infamous ‘walrus’ began Williams’ decline

Jan 20 2022

Williams’s slide down the Formula 1 pecking order in the 2000s began with the infamous ‘Walrus’ nose design it started the year with in 2004.

Jonathan Williams and Karun Chandhok join Glenn Freeman on our Bring Back V10s classic F1 stories podcast to reflect on the memorable but ultimately unsuccessful design, which was ditched mid-season.

We look into why the team tried it, why it didn’t work, and the upheaval Williams was going through behind the scenes, with both drivers moving on for 2005, a major technical shake-up inside the team, and growing tension with BMW.
