Silverstone Test, Day One

Driver: Mark Webber
Car: RB4 01
Time: 1:21.565
Laps: 94


Fastest Lap: F. Massa 1:20.188
Circuit length: 5.141 km

As usual at the summer Silverstone test, there were more guests, fans and spectators in the F1 paddock that can be seen filling entire circuits at some of the less popular grands prix on the calendar. None of this affected the work of the Red Bull Racing test team, as they got on with the job of preparing for the British Grand Prix which takes place at this track on 6th July.

Mark Webber was in the cockpit today, working on various aero and mechanical development programmes. There were no problems and the team completed more than the planned mileage, which could be a good thing as there is talk of rain for tomorrow. Mark is due to continue driving on Wednesday when the emphasis changes to British GP preparation, looking at car set-up and evaluation of the Bridgestone tyres on offer.
