Not bad for being their first real testing day with a rookie driver, a new team and first car designed entirely via computer aided software, eh?
hope this shuts the mouth of some critics...
Give them some time!

Frank G, yours is the first correct description of the computer help/use to design the car, there was a hell of a mix up on here about CAD being the thing for designing/arriving at the aero part/shape of the car, the proper name of the tool/program is CFD for short “computational fluid dynamics”

I wonder how long Branson will keep investing in the team if they don't perform well?

The only team I don't really care for is McLaren. Not a big fan of the fake "Lotus" either. But ferrari are my team even if they have lost the plot recently by putting Alonso in one of their cars.

I hope Virgin do well though.
