Mark Webber was at the wheel of the RB4 today for his second day of testing. The majority of today's test was focused on aero development work and suspension changes, in preparation for the next two races. The team showed good progress and potential in both areas. The team also carried out some 2009 tyre tests, to complete a programme that carried over from yesterday.

Mark Webber commented: "We've had a pretty good two days here. The car ran pretty reliably and we've clocked up some good mileage. Today we were mostly getting ready for Budapest, as well as looking at developments for a little later in the season. Yesterday we were focusing more on `09, and it was quite a challenging day. Today was better in terms of what we learned, mechanically and aerodynamically. It's been a hot week for the guys working here and they've done a good job."

David Coulthard will take over tomorrow for the final day of the four-day test.
