Testing improves for Virgin on Day 2

1 Mins read

Virgin Racing had a productive second day of testing in Barcelona, with Timo Glock completing valuable race preparation work in the VR-01.

The team made the most of the warm and sunny conditions to continue debugging the new car as Glock completed 52 laps.

The day finished with the team completing their first ever pit-stop practice session. They will continue to focus efforts on preparing the car, and the all-new pit crew, for the first race of the season in Bahrain.

Nick Wirth, Technical Director for Virgin Racing, acknowledged that the next two days were vital for getting everything ready for the team's first race. “Our recent hydraulic issues, plus yesterday's crash, have required us to focus the remaining pre-season track time on procedural preparation for Bahrain. The crash rebuild postponed the start of today's programme to midday, nevertheless it was quite satisfying to see us complete the day with no reoccurrence of our hydraulic problems. Timo took over the driving duties from Lucas today and we never really got him happy with his throttle pedal, which is something we're addressing tonight.”
