Day 4 Barcelona Test

Webber: Our boys did a great job

(Red Bull Press Release) The final day of Formula One’s second pre-season test might have seen the weather take a turn for the worse in Barcelona, but despite the intermittent downpours and a host of red flags as drivers were caught out by the conditions, Mark Webber managed to get through the full programme planned by Infiniti Red Bull Racing.

At the end of 64 laps, he praised the team’s work during a tough day at the Circuit de Catalunya.

“It was cold out there today, I can’t remember having a full test day this cold,” said Mark afterwards.

“But actually it was reasonably consistent; the conditions were pretty stable all day, although not very representative of a grand prix weekend. So, unusual conditions but I was happy with what we got done today.”

“The mechanics were incredible in getting through everything. We got a lot of good stuff done today. The boys did a great job – the best I’ve seen them, I think, so all credit to them.”

“We did a lot of housekeeping work today, whether it was pit stops or other race weekend elements and we did that really well – as a team,” he added.

“We’re back here next week and we’ll do more of the same for sure: ongoing investigations into how the tyres work, learning more about those, checking how they perform in different temperatures, all of that kind of thing. That will be right at the top of the list but also we’ll undoubtedly be doing some performance stuff, which you constantly need to keep putting on the car in order to stay close to the front.”
