Red Bull press release
Car 1 SEBASTIAN VETTEL - 1st Practice P3, 2nd Practice P3
“It wasn’t a big mistake this morning, but in that moment I wasn’t 100 percent awake and mistakes around here can be quite costly. I went off and tried to slow the car down, but I hit the wall slightly.
It wasn’t a big impact, but it did some damage to the car, so it wasn’t perfect. It did affect our run plan a little, but we had a solid afternoon. The circuit seems pretty tricky this year on these tyres – they make the cars seem more alive, so Sunday will be an interesting race. Taking130R with the DRS open isn’t as easy as it used to be!”
Car 2 MARK WEBBER - 1st Practice P5, 2nd Practice P4
“It’s good fun, it’s a great track and you can really let the car go around here, so all of us enjoyed it. It’s a challenging circuit; we know there are a couple of tricky corners that can catch us out and we’re all pushing to the limit obviously. We got some good information today; we ran both tyre compounds and completed some long runs, so not a bad day. I don’t think KERS will be a problem here, but it’s possible that the DRS might catch a few people out.”
