In F1, if you're not moving forward, you're going backwards, because every other team is looking to move forwards.

I don't expect much from Virgin in 2011. The car doesn't look very radical, so all they've done is evolve last years car, whereas other teams are looking to make a BIG move, I think Virgin will remain where they were in 2010.

I see one big problem for this team right from the start..Timo has neen around for some time now.
He had a very good teammate Toyota he should have a fir hand on what makes a car go, setup, engine and
testing. The second driver is the weak link,
Jerome d'Ambrosio may have some talent (??)little
experience combined with no real F1 racing savvy.
Not much development work can come from him.
A small startup team has no place for a rookie
well, maybe money.. Pedro DE a Rosa would have been a real car developer, testing guy. He has a long
history with big Mac. He maybe is not the fastest
foot on the track but his knowledge, like Rubin
is second to none...
