Ken Tyrrell’s team, winner of the Drivers’ and Constructor’s Championships in 1971, went into the new Formula One season in 1972 with the same cars. Tyrrells 002, 003 and 004 all were built of the basic Tyrrell 001 design. The visible changes were the “buff” nose instead of front wing, and fiberglass air intake and panels covering engine and surrounding area. The drivers lineup remaining unchanged – Jackie Stewart and Francois Cevert. The season was a step backward for the Tyrrell. Lotus 72D and Emerson Fittipaldi dominated both Drivers’ and Constructor’s Championships while Tyrrell finished as runner-up at both standings. Francois Cevert, who drove 002 chassis throughout the season, took two 2nd place finishes at Belgium and USA and was only 6th in the final Drivers’ standings. This Quartzo scale model represents Cevert’s 002 from French Grand Prix held on Circuit de Charade at Clermont-Ferrand where Francois finished 4th.
