Comments from the Red Bull drivers after Friday practices for the Spanish Grand Prix

David Coulthard:

"We had a few things we wanted to check on the car today, so we didn't really follow our normal Friday test programme. We do a lot of laps in testing here though, so we should be okay."

Christian Klien:

"I only did an installation lap this morning, but I was happy with the car's balance straight away. It was a pretty positive Friday for us, as there were only test drivers and Alonso ahead of me so it's quite good, quite promising."

"But, that said, we have to wait to see what we can do for the rest of the weekend. It's only Friday and things often get shuffled up on Saturday."

Robert Doornbos:

"That was good. I've never driven here in the wet before, so I was surprised to see it raining this morning. It dried out pretty quick though, which meant we were able to do our job."

"We did two long runs this afternoon, the second of which was very consistent and quick. I made a 180 spin at one point and the marshals helped me back onto the track - so thanks to them for that!"
