Craig Wilson graduated from Imperial College, London, in the early 1990s with a Masters degree in Aeronautical Engineering, having collaborated with the Benetton F1 team for his final year's thesis.

Following his Masters, Craig then completed an MSc in Automotive Engineering at Cranfield University, during which he completed his thesis in conjunction with Paul Stewart Racing.

After completing his University studies, Wilson joined Paul Stewart Racing as a vehicle dynamics engineer working on consulting projects with the Ford Motor Company, including a 7 month secondment to the USA. At the end of 1995, Craig joined the Tyrrell F1 team as a data analyst. This role developed to include vehicle dynamics modelling, rig testing and the position of test team engineer during the time at Tyrrell.

In early 1998, Craig joined Williams F1 as race engineer to Heinz-Harald Frentzen. He subsequently engineered Ralf Schumacher until the end of the 2002 season, when he decided to accept an offer from BAR Honda to work with Jenson Button as Senior Race Engineer.

Craig took on a new challenge for 2004 in the role of Chief Race Engineer. This new position saw Craig take overall responsibility for all of BAR Honda's engineering activities at the race track during the team’s most successful season to date.

From 2006, Craig continued in the position of Chief Race Engineer for the re-energised Honda Racing F1 Team.
