Mark Webber set the fastest lap for the team in Thursday practice on the streets of Monte Carlo.
Car 2, Mark Webber
First Practice Session: Position: 7, Best Time: 1:17.020, Laps: 27
Second Practice Session: Position: 5, Best Time: 1:15.404, Laps: 42
“I think generally it was okay. Unfortunately we lost quite a lot of time in the afternoon while we were making some changes, but that can happen on Friday, or in this case Thursday. We’d like to be a little bit more competitive, so we need to try and find some more lap time. We had a KERS issue this afternoon, so I didn’t use the system during P2. The guys know what the problem was with that.”
Car 1, Sebastian Vettel
First Practice Session: Position: 10, Best Time: 1:17.380, Laps: 23
Second Practice Session: Position: 9, Best Time: 1:16.014, Laps: 33
After all the serious business of the day, here are five fast facts from Mark:
Mark Webber’s Top 5… Sports teams of all time
The Chicago Bulls: The Michael Jordan period. It was massive for me growing up. I really was into that then, Scotty Pippen and all those guys.
Manchester United: Which era? Always.
The Queensland Rugby League Team: It pains me to say it as I’m a New South Welshman, but those teams have been pretty successful over the past decade in the State of Origin series.
The Australian Cricket Team: During the Steve Waugh era. I think they won something like 17 or 18 test matches on the bounce, which was pretty handy.
