Small steps are paying off for Virgin

TEAM boss John Booth reckons that small is beautiful right now for Virgin Racing.

As Booth and the Dinnington team head to Sepang this weekend for the Malaysian Grand Prix, the intention is to continue the small-step development work which saw them bring both cars home in Australia a fortnight ago.

He said: “This time last year we were struggling with reliability issues that were preventing us from finishing races. This year we’ve demonstrated that we are on top of that and that is a much better starting point to build upon.

“We know what we have to do, so while that work is taking place behind the scenes, the best job we can do is to keep bringing cars home and focusing on smaller incremental steps.

“This round of long-haul races means there are few developments we can bring to the car until the next significant upgrade for Turkey.
