In terms of distance covered, this was the most encouraging day in the RB2's short life to date. Christian Klien, having his first ever run in RB2, took over from David Coulthard today, and put around 200 kilometers on the speedo, the most it has ever done in one day.

Paul Monaghan, Head of Race and Test Engineering:

"This morning, we had a problem with the transmission lubrication system, that cost us some track time. In the afternoon, Christian was settling in to the new car and we had made progress on the set-up front."

"We were hoping to validate that with a better time at the end of the session, but one of many Red Flags on the day, spoilt our plan!"
