Our 2017 contender is here

The VJM10 is the natural product of the big regulation overhaul for 2017. With substantial changes to the aerodynamics, to the chassis and to the tyres, the new season represents a marked departure from previous years.

Our new contender looks aggressive, racy - ready to take on the challenge of the new season.

Building on previous success

There may be very little to carry forward from last year's very successful VJM09, but the VJM10 builds on our philosophy of maximising the return on our resource investment. The new regulations are a challenge - making the cars faster in the corners and subjecting the drivers to a more demanding style of driving.
