Mark Webber’s trouble inveterate as engine

The championship leaders Red Bull have fit a rear wing-stalling F-duct device for the first time in Turkey. Vettel, who trailed the system, was pleased although there was an angry end to the day for team-mate Webber. Following McLaren top the first practice, Webber and Vettel moved into second and third places in the afternoon, with the Australian within a tenth of Jenson Button’s top time.

“It was a reasonable day and quite tough as we introduced the f-duct,” Vettel began. “We still need to do some fine-tuning but it looks good. I think McLaren looks very competitive here, their system seems to be working well and they seem quite a bit quicker than everyone else on the straights.”

Mark Webber, tie with Vettel in terms of points but ahead in the championship virtue of one more race win, was forced to pull over on the exit of Turn 2 before irately gesture to race marshals from the cockpit.

“The engine went at the end of P2 but it was a high mileage engine, so we were expecting it to be on the edge,” he said. “There’s no hand brake on a F1 car so when I stopped I was trying to tell them to put something behind the wheel to stop the car rolling back – a frustrating thing to explain from within the car! “The guys have done a phenomenal job to get it to this point and we’re happy with how it went today but, whether we race it or not, we don’t know yet.”
