Virgin Racing experienced an altogether more productive day in Jerez today. The team completed an encouraging 72 laps with Timo Glock posting the 8th fastest time of the 12 cars on track. While the team's fortunes took a turn for the better, the weather still hasn't and the rain looks likely to continue for much of the remaining two days of crucial pre-season testing. Tomorrow it's Lucas di Grassi's turn in the VR-01.

Nick Wirth, Virgin Racing Technical Director, commented: "After a great overnight effort from the Virgin Racing team, we managed to complete more than a race distance today, which is very satisfying after our frustrations of yesterday. We also managed to prove out some development parts which gave results completely in line with the performance prediction from the development programme at Wirth Research. This is always satisfying as it gives the team and drivers a great and confidence-inspiring introduction to our development program for this car. We continue to work around the clock to fix issues as they arise, and we're looking forward to Lucas's comments on the car's progress tomorrow."
