JEREZ TEST Day Two

Driver: Sebastian Vettel
Car: RB5 02
Laps: 102
Best time: 1:32.220
Circuit length: 4.423 km
Fastest lap: T. Glock 1:30.979

The British-based F1 teams, including Red Bull Racing, must be thinking it's time to return to "the good old days" and carry out winter testing at Silverstone. While England basked in unseasonably warm and sunny weather, Jerez circuit was hit by heavy and continuous rain.

The original plan had been for the team to carry out development testing of RB5 in the morning, before tackling a race simulation in the afternoon. The wet track saw the morning programme replaced with a run through of pit lane procedures and pit stops, which proved very useful as this was the first time with the new car, that the pit crew due to be in action in Melbourne have worked through all the pit stop permutations together. In the afternoon, Sebastian successfully completed the race distance.

Tomorrow, Mark Webber takes over behind the wheel, for the remaining three days of this five day session.
