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."
Lucas di Grassi and Timo Glock will drive the car, which will be shaken down at Silverstone on Thursday and Friday.
The team will then join the rest of the F1 field for the second winter test at Jerez, where it will also become the first of the new entrants to test alongside the established squads.
