Virgin Racing iron out problems in Jerez

1 Mins read

The new Virgin Racing team had a very tough day in Jerez today, completing just 10 laps and failing to set a representative time.

An elusive hydraulics problem hampered the team, who were limited to conducting just a series of out-laps as they attempted to diagnose the problem.

This was just the second full test of the VR-01 for Virgin, as it prepares for its debut race in Bahrain next month.

Nick Wirth, the team's technical director is more optimistic for tomorrow's testing. “We have experienced a sequence of hydraulic problems which were tricky to diagnose on a new car. This caused us to suffer long and frustrating periods confined to the garage and when we did venture out on track it was purely to conduct a series of exploratory out-laps to try to understand if we had cured the problem. We eventually discovered the real issue, albeit rather late in the day. Nonetheless, having fully identified the problem, we can fix it tonight and look forward to what we hope will be a more constructive day of running for Timo and the team tomorrow.”
