The Asiatech engine used last year is replaced by a factory spec Cosworth engine also used by the Jaguar team. Not only the engine was replaced, 2000 and 2001 driver Jos Verstappen was replaced by German Heinz Harald Frentzen.

The A23 was designed at Leafield by a team of 20 design engineers, led by Technical Director, Mike Coughlan. The first man to drive the A23 was Enrique Bernoldi who took the wheel for a shakedown in the UK on February 3rd. The car was officially released with the new livery on the Wednesday before the season opening Australian Grand Prix.

The Tom Walkinshaw run team was dogged by money problems throughout the season. Frentzen did score some points but after a couple of races the financial situation forced Arrows to not take part in races. At the end of the season the team officially folded as multiple rescue plans failed to work. Arrows was the second team to go bankrupt within a year, after Prost Grand Prix seized operation early in 2002.
