Virgin Racing has revealed its first Formula One car, the VR-01.
Unfortunately, the team's online launch was beset by technical problems - a fact that caused much consternation as it had been hailed as a digital launch for a digital car, in reference to the fact the VR-01 has been created using computational fluid dynamics rather than a windtunnel.
Nevertheless, Virgin became the first of F1's four new teams to unveil its car.
"Today is a very proud day for everyone involved with Virgin Racing, however on this occasion, where the car is the star, I want to pay tribute to all the amazing people at Wirth Research who deserve so much of the credit for the VR-01," said designer Nick Wirth.
"Putting together an F1 team, assembling an engineering group and designing a new car from scratch is an epic task in the timeframe we have been working to."
