Red Bull need to improve overnight for tomorrow's qualifying at Yas Marina

Sebastian Vettel: “I think we can be happy with today. Overall we got a good lap on the soft tyres, but in general pace the McLaren’s were quick and seem competitive, so they’re the ones we need to look out for and beat.

We need to improve the car overnight to qualify as high as we can tomorrow.”

Mark Webber: “We had a KERS issue, which wasn’t the same as last week. It never helps to miss some running on the track during practice, but it’s not a big deal.

The track will move around a little bit from where it is now, but not a huge amount; it’s in pretty good shape straightaway. We’ll get it fixed tonight and come back tomorrow.”
