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

David Coulthard:

"We seem to have more oversteer, compared to when we tested here. Obviously, we've got more to come when we start unleashing engine modes and so forth, but obviously, we're a lot further away than we were relatively on day one in Monaco."

Christian Klien:

"It's very windy out on the track today so it was difficult to drive. The wind had a big effect on the car through the high-speed corners and we struggled with down-force. As a result, I spun in one corner and damaged one of my tyres. That meant I had to use a second set today, so I've now lost a set for the weekend."

"In the second run, we improved the car balance a little, but it was still difficult to drive. You couldn't really work on the set-up that much because tomorrow there might be no wind, so it up would all be different all over again - but no wind will definitely mean better balance."

Robert Doornbos:

"That was a disappointing day, the worst this season I think, which is a shame at the home race for the factory. We had some mechanical problems this morning, so I wasn't able to complete a timed lap. This afternoon the set-up of the car just wasn't there and we had to do too many things in a short period of time, so that's why we were not very competitive. I wish the guys more luck for the coming weekend."
