Red Bull Barcelona test, day 1 report

Red Bull Racing was back in action at the Circuit de Catalunya today, with Sebastian Vettel at the wheel of the RB7 for the first day of the Barcelona test.

Red Bull Racing was back in action at the Circuit de Catalunya today, with Sebastian Vettel at the wheel of the RB7 for the first day of the Barcelona test.

A damp start to the day gave the team a chance to test the intermediate Pirelli tyres, before conditions began to dry. Sebastian had a couple of minor offs in the morning session, prompting the team to complete some precautionary checks over lunch.

Sebastian Vettel said: "Unfortunately, we didn't complete many laps today, as we had a long break - longer than expected. It wasn't anything big, nothing broke, but at the test if you think there might be a problem then you'd rather take the car apart and check. The boys did their best and we still got some runs towards the end of the day - not as much as we'd like, but the car feels good and hopefully we'll do more tomorrow."

Ian Morgan, Head of Race Engineering, commented: "It was frustrating today, as we lost some time making checks to the car during lunch. It's what testing is for, but we would have liked to complete more laps today."

Sebastian will be back at the wheel tomorrow, for day two of the four-day test.
