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

David Coulthard:

"I think we're likely to stay where we are for the next two races, but this time last year we really struggled on Thursday in Germany and yet on Sunday we had one of our best races ever in terms of competitiveness."

"It wasn't just that we got fourth place, but we were actually within five or sixth tenths of the quickest time, so I've got an open mind ahead of the weekend. Although it's pretty difficult today, with track evolution and things like that, things will change. "

Christian Klien:

"That wasn't exciting today. We did some balance work this afternoon, but I'm still not happy. There's potential in the car, but the balance is definitely something we'll have to think more about overnight. "

Robert Doornbos:

"I raced on this track in Formula 3 and F3000 and in both series had a podium finish. I was with Christian Horner's team when I raced in F3000 and almost won the race, until the last couple of laps. I eventually came second."

"I haven't done any Formula One testing here, but the track obviously suits me well. I went round here in the RS4 yesterday doing taxi rides for guests, so maybe that gave me a chance to learn the racing lines a little! I'm glad to have been in the top five in both sessions, so I'm happy."
