F1: Virgins Won't Go All The Way!

After a pretty dismal start to the season in Bahrain the one thing the Virgin team didn't need was more bad publicity. So having to admit that the fuel tanks in their cars aren't big enough to get them to the end of a race seems like a particularly awkward thing to have to admit.

The team are claiming that changes in the regulations meant their initial design was compromised, yet all the other teams seem to avoided that particular pratfall...

I'm not a big fan of Nick Wirth, Virgin team boss, (anyone who remembers Imola 1994 will know why) so the only disappointment for me is that the FIA are allowing them to modify their car to fit a bigger tank.  Still the sight of them trundling around pointless for the next few races will provide plenty of amusement...
