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 004 was fourth and final car built of the basic Tyrrell 001 design. 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. Jackie Stewart mainly used 003 chassis in 1972 before changing it to new 005 at the final part of the season. But at Monaco Grand Prix Stewart drove the Tyrrell 004, the fourth and last car built based on Tyrrell 001 design. Stewart won 4 Championship Grand Prix in 1972 – in Argentina and France on 003, and in Canada and USA on 005. On his only drive of 004 at Monaco Stewart finished 4th.
