The Three Musketeers were on duty for Red Bull Racing today, with David Coulthard joining Christian Klien and Robert Doornbos for day two of the test. Which one is Athos, which Porthos and which Aramis is open to debate.

Christian continued to drive the 02 chassis, featuring the latest aerodynamic configuration. The Austrian did more chassis set-up work, as well as testing control systems and evaluating tyres for the Bahrain and Malaysian Grands Prix.

Robert Doornbos, in the older 01 chassis, also worked on set-up and control systems, running in the morning before handing over to David Coulthard. "This gives David a good reference for comparison when he drives RB2-02 tomorrow", explained Technical Director, Mark Smith. "Apart from a couple of stoppages with Christian's car, this has been another productive day."

Coulthard tries chassis 02 for the first time tomorrow and will be the only Red Bull Racing driver on track, as the other car is being shipped back to the factory to be fitted with the latest bodywork package.
