Following the theme of our preview, this release is based on work produced by kids from Mark Webber's old school in Queanbeyan. The project produced collages, poems, scrapbooks, model cars, board games and generally showed a lot of imagination, including a set of funny captions, like this one...

"Mark had forgotten to tell his mum that practice finishes later this season"

David Coulthard:

"Difficult track conditions today, but nonetheless we worked through our programme to evaluate the tyres and chassis balance. Changing between cars is not such a good thing to be honest (David used the T car for session one and his race car for session two), as no two cars are ever the same - but it helps to spread out the mileage."

Mark Webber:

"The first session was dominated by the weather and everyone was getting used to the track as it dried out. We ran on intermediates and then changed to dry tyres towards the end of the practice. The first session enabled us to begin to get an idea of the car's balance before the race on Sunday, but I had a transmission problem in the second session and had to stop early. "

Throughout this season, David and Mark will alternate using the spare car on Friday morning, starting with David in Melbourne.
