Red Bull: Car is working well but there are areas we can improve

Jun.22 (Red Bull Press Release) Team and drivers review the first practice day of the European Grand Prix weekend, at Valencia Street Circuit, in Spain – Round 8 of the 2012 Formula 1 world championship.

Car 1, Sebastian Vettel:
“We have tried some new parts on the car today, but the lap times have not really allowed us to have a fair conclusion of them yet. It was important to have a clean practice today and I’m happy with what we did. The conditions will change again for Sunday I think; it was a bit cooler today, which will make a difference. It’s close between the teams and it’s not yet clear what the right strategy is for Sunday, hopefully we can make a step forward tomorrow.”

First Practice Session
Position: 2, Best Time: 1:40.973, Laps: 21
Second Practice Session
Position: 1, Best Time: 1:39.334, Laps: 33

Car 2, Mark Webber:
“The car’s working well, but there are areas where we can improve. I was happier on the harder tyre, the balance on the soft tyres wasn’t great today, but we’ll work on that tonight. The wind was playing a role today – but there will be less tomorrow. Regarding changes we’ve made to the car, we’ll know on Sunday if they’re working well for us. The circuit will get a bit quicker as we lay rubber down, and it will get a bit hotter as well, so let’s see.”

First Practice Session
Position: 3, Best Time: 1:40.984, Laps: 19
Second Practice Session
Position: 9, Best Time 1:39.901, Laps: 30
