NOT (STRICTLY) OUR HOME RACE!

The factory might be just a few miles away from Silverstone, in Milton Keynes, but Red Bull Racing is entered in the World Championship as an Austrian team...

"Overall I think it was a good day for both of us. I don't know what happened to Mark at the end of the second session, but otherwise it was a smooth run through the programme. We were able to do a lot of laps and collect a lot of data. The new parts that we brought here seem to be working well, which is a good sign, but on a Friday it's always difficult to know how quick we really are. I think we've made a step forward though and, just like our team slogan Red Bull Gives You Wings, I think they helped us today for our performance on track."

"It's been a pretty good day for us; we've tried a few new bits here, which seem to be going pretty well. We've tried both sets of tyres and need to go through all the data tonight. My second session ended a little early as I hit a kerb on Turn five, which caused the car's electronics to stop. Silverstone is a spectacular circuit and always has been -- it's phenomenal to drive it in a Formula One car. I was lucky enough to talk to some of the fans when I stopped on the track and they said the car was looking incredible, so it's nice to see that they're enjoying what we're doing."
