Sebastian Vettel

May.7 (YF1) After a fairly decent set of times in Spain this afternoon, here’s Red Bull Racing’s drivers had to say at the end of the day…

Car 5 Sebastian Vettel: “We’ve got a few changes on our car, but I don’t think anything as significant as perhaps some of the other teams have. There’s a little bit everywhere on ours and I think we’ve proved today that our changes work. I think the lap times are irrelevant from a Friday. It’s good to be fast, but I think the McLarens are quick here – I don’t think they were pushing hard this afternoon and I think it will be much closer tomorrow.”
First Practice Session
Position: 5, Best Time: 1:22.026, Laps: 22, Chassis No. 3
Second Practice Session
Position: 1, Best Time: 1:19.965, Laps: 24, Chassis No. 3

Car 6 Mark Webber: “That was a good day for us – we had a smooth run, a nice P1 and P2 with no interruption from the weather or things like that. The guys worked faultlessly in the garage, the driver did a little bit as well and it was a good day. Don’t read too much into the times; McLaren probably weren’t showing everything today. It was a very late night for the team last night, but a positive day today and hopefully we’re well prepared for tomorrow.”
