Jerez Test II Day 2: Red Bull report

Sebastian Vettel

Feb.18 (YF1) Sebastian Vettel was driving the RB6 again today on day two of the current four-day test in Southern Spain where, guess what – it rained!

The team’s agenda had included more aero-testing and set-up work, but Mother Nature had other ideas and intermittent heavy rain and strong winds compromised the planned programme. Sebastian used full-wet tyres in the morning and wet and intermediate tyres in the afternoon. He completed 71 laps and the car ran reliably all day.

At the end of the session, Sebastian Vettel said: “Generally, the feeling with the car is good. The weather has been pretty bad over the last couple of days, which meant we couldn’t do a lot of our planned testing, although it’s been the same for everyone. It’s a
shame, as this is one of our three pre-season tests and last week the weather was quite bad also – it seems that Spain is not so happy to have us here!

“Nevertheless, we have still got some important work done and the car has been reliable; we didn’t have
any problems. Hopefully we will have better weather in Barcelona next week and conditions will improve here for Mark over the next couple of days.”

Mark Webber is in the car tomorrow for the remaining two days of this test.
