Timo Glock demonstrates something technical to the pitwall
Virgin Racing

Timo Glock gives the pit wall a physical demonstration of the car's handling during the Chinese Grand Prix weekend. Virgin had a mixed weekend, with Jérôme D'Ambrosio finishing 20th and happy with his weekend. Timo Glock finished 21st, and was not so keen on the handling of his car.

After the race, he said: "In general we suffered a bit more rear degradation for some reason. The team then took the decision to convert to a three stop race but this was not the right way to go because we suffered massively with the blue flags. Then in the last stop the wheel didn't go on, which cost me a few seconds leaving the pits."

Meanwhile, team principal John Booth is sure that improvements are forthcoming: "...as you would expect, everyone at our technical base is nose to the grindstone ensuring that the Turkey upgrade goes according to plan and delivers the performance gains we expect so we can get back to where we should be for the start of the European season."
