New Jag fail's crash test

According to reports in the Australian press, Jaguar Racing's new R4 has failed its all-important FIA crash test only a week before its official launch. The new contender, that is hoped to see much improved performances at the hands of Mark Webber and Antonio Pizzonia this season, will now have to undergo another side impact test before it can be raced.

The team are reportedly working overtime to correct the problems that saw it fail, however while this is viewed as a serious set back, it is not the first time a car hasn't come up to the FIA's standards and more than likely won't be the last. This by no means is an indication that they won't be racing the new car in Melbourne.

The Milton Keynes based squad are due to unveil the R4 online through yahoo next Tuesday, the 21st of January, the day after the first of Renault's two official presentations.
