Virgin VR01 – Front wing , Bahraini spec


 

         VR01 was the first F1 car ever to be entirely designed by CFD program with the team  lacking totally wind tunnel data  . So Virgin preferred to start the season at Bahrain with a simple double profiled  front wing with slotted endplates instead of using a much more complicated one . The reason was that a simpler wing would gave simpler track data to evaluate and compare car overall aero performance with theoretical data extracted from CFD .
