Comments from the Red Bull drivers after Friday practices for the Chinese Grand Prix

David Coulthard:

"We ran through our programme well today and balance-wise we're looking okay. We had a good tyre evaluation, so we're not overly concerned by the choices we have to make for tomorrow."

"Our times were competitive, but, to be honest, irrespective of where we are on Fridays, if you look at Saturday's qualifying times, it's been quite similar throughout the year with McLaren, Ferrari, BMW and then Red Bull with Renault, Toyota and Williams. I think it will be similar tomorrow."

Mark Webber:

"That was a good Friday running today. We got through our schedule okay and the car was reliable. We're going to run through a few things tonight to see if we can get a bit more consistency but, apart from that, it was a good P2. P1 wasn't that great for us - but P2 was much better and it's something strong for us to work with tonight."

"Away from today's events, I would just like to make it clear that, although I criticised Hamilton's driving in yesterday's FIA Press Conference, at no time have I made any official complaint about anyone's driving following Sunday's Japanese Grand Prix."
