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

David Coulthard:

"A normal Friday really. We ran in the morning session, in case it was wet for the entire second practice. That meant the tyres weren't fresh for the second practice, which lost us a little bit of performance, but there's not much more to add at the moment. We'll have to see where we are tomorrow, when everyone's running in qualifying mode."

Christian Klien:

"I just did an installation lap this morning. We waited around half an hour before starting the second practice session, while we waited for the rain to clear. I then did two runs, which were okay. I was pretty happy with the balance, perhaps there was a little too much understeer, but we can fix that for tomorrow. It was a good session and hopefully we'll improve further tomorrow."

Robert Doornbos:

"It's special to be back here in Hockenheim. It was where I raced my first Formula One race for Minardi and it's good to see so many Dutch fans here. It was a bit tricky this morning due to all the different weather forecasts we were getting for the afternoon, but we managed to complete all the dry running that we needed to, although it was quite tight in the end. I think we look quite competitive here. It's good for me to finish third fastest, and I hope we continue to run well throughout the weekend."
