During the season the car was unreliable having a dismal start which saw the team fail to score a single championship point during the first half of the season. Also Olivier Panis failed to finish the first seven races. The team scored their first points when they finished fourth and fifth at the 2002 British Grand Prix at Silverstone. Eventually the team finished eighth in the Constructors' Championship with seven points. Panis then left the team at the end of the year to drive for Toyota Racing, being replaced for 2003 by Jenson Button, who spent the 2002 season driving for Renault.
