Looks very much an evolution of the previous car. That said, contrasted to last years car is much more agressive and more fine details.

Hopefully they can improve on last year by taking the fight to the more establised teams rather than just keep pace or fall further back.

It looks like they just rolled out last years car with a new code name!

And bearing in mind how basic last years car was then this is a massive let down! Maybe with some different pics it might show more. At least they should be reliable but i dowt they'll have the pace of the new Team lotus but thats showed it prob wont ever finish.......!

I hope that, like all the 2010 new teams, Virgin move up the order and start mixing it with the more established teams.

But I am unconvinced. Except for a brief glimpse of Verstappen quality at Argentina in 1995 I have never seen a Nick Wirth desgined car do anything of note in F1, and has had a decent number of attempts now (and decent facilities at Benetton).

Wait and see about Team Lotus they barely did any flying laps until there filming day on friday cus of dodgy steering, during the normal 3 day test they could only do installation laps.

I know that. But generally I don't see the fuss about it anyway. Sure it looks quicker, last year's Lotus had old technology written all over it, but it hasn't gone fast and neither has this car. So far they've been all talk and even if this is a development of last year's car it could well be faster than TL. Don't jump to PR-talk-based conclusions here, wait and see is the name of the game. :)
