Red Bull Brazilian GP Friday practice report

Red Bull press release

Car 2 MARK WEBBER, 1st Practice P1, 2nd Practice P3

“The track is hot, not super hot in terms of ambient conditions, but the track is very warm and it’s humid too. It’s also pretty windy, so it wasn’t the easiest day to get the car dialled in and balanced, but clearly it was the same for everybody. I think we had a pretty good day; there are lots of sets of compounds to go through, as it might be the last time we get to run in the dry as there’s potentially some wet weather coming – but we had a good day.”

“I think we were able to improve the car throughout today, but we definitely need to make another step. It was hot today and the circuit was slippery, although rain is forecast for the next two days, so I think the conditions will change. We’re all here to win and it would be great to finish with a good race, but it’s a long weekend ahead and a lot of things can happen. It’s a challenging track and we all like coming here, it’s a good grand prix.”
