I like what Nick Wirth says "We have gathered some vital aero data which is very much in the range of what we were predicting".

So the vital aero data is that the car is no good without a front wing, and what was he predicting, that the wing would fall off after just 11 laps! :?

Freddie aka someone else, Peter is right and CAD shows all component loadings - everyone on here agrees with that apart from you. Mentioning Adrian Newey's comment is completely irrelevant.

Richard,I cannot understand why you spend so much time on this and other motorsport sites when you could be designing your own car or at the very least acting as an F1 team manager! Talk about wasting a talent! :)

Richard, I know you like disagreeing with every post I make, but all I wasd saying is that we could all be premature that it was a design fault and it was better wait for everyones safety to wait till the morning. As JJJ has now informed us all, the problem was caused by a kerb. This one would have to reckon, would not make the Virgin car a danger to anyone. The team knew what their side of the problem was, not bringing enough spares with them. And not being nasty to Timo in any way, maybe one of the spare parts they forgot was Lucas DiGrazzi!!
