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

David Coulthard:

"They were pretty hectic sessions today. We have very high track temperatures and with the low down force that we run here, the car's quite tricky to drive. I didn't actually go off the circuit, but there were a lot of moments. The times are encouraging."

Mark Webber:

"Today didn't quite go to plan, especially in terms of completing our programme. We were working quite hard on the balance, trying to adjust it and get it to a place where I was happy with it. We needed a bit more track time, but then we had a transmission failure, which cut short the day. It's pretty tight between all the cars, it always is round here, so now we'll just look to tomorrow."
