The Virgin VR-01 is a Formula One motor racing car designed by Nick Wirth[1] for Virgin Racing in the 2010 season. It is to be driven by former Toyota Racing driver Timo Glock[2] and Brazilian GP2 driver Lucas di Grassi.[3] The car is the first Formula One racing car designed entirely with computational fluid dynamics.[4] The car was due to be launched online through the official team website on 3 February 2010, but crippling technical issues prevented the broadcast from taking place.[5]
