CFD is an amazing and useful bit of tech but it is not a magical cure-all. Nothing like real-world testing. Even wind tunnel testing is not 100%- thanks to possible errors in setup or calculations as has been proven this year by Ferrari. CFD has far more variables than a wind tunnel and if even one is slightly off than the results are garbage. One day it may be able to be used without a wind tunnel but that day is not yet here. Sorry Nick, but maybe you should have been more willing to add more well proven methods to the repertoire at Virgin. Now they will do so without you.
