Timo Glock has admitted he is disappointed with Virgin's early 2011 form.

While the F1 circus paid more attention to the hapless HRT team in Melbourne, the Virgin cars driven by Glock and Jerome d'Ambrosio also seemed at risk of falling afoul the new 107 per cent qualifying rule.

German Glock has been quoted elsewhere as admitting he is worried about the team's sole reliance on computer modelling over using a wind tunnel.

And he told German-language Speed Week that Virgin's speed has "gone backwards" since its 2010 debut.

"As a team we have moved forward," said the 29-year-old. "The others have made massive steps.

"We couldn't believe it in Barcelona (for winter testing) but now it is obvious that we are not where we should be," added Glock.
