Red Bull: Overall we are not as quick as we would like to be

Sep.7 (Red Bull) Team and drivers report on the first day of practice for the Italian Grand Prix, round 13 of the 2012 Formula One World Championship, at Monza.

Car 2, Mark Webber:
First Practice Session
Position: 9, Best Time: 1:26.390, Laps: 24
Second Practice Session
Position: 11, Best Time: 1:26.104, Laps: 35
“We’re working hard, but we’re not there yet. We were a bit more competitive on the longer runs in practice today. We’re not normally the Friday World Champions, so we’ll do some work now for tomorrow. We often find a good step [just] ahead of qualifying.”

Car 1, Sebastian Vettel:
First Practice Session
Position: 11, Best Time: 1:26.508, Laps: 18
Second Practice Session
Position: 13, Best Time: 1:26.394, Laps: 31
“I think overall we are not as quick as we would like to be, so there’s still work to do. I think we are more competitive in race trim, but we aren’t where we want to be yet in terms of true pace. We ran through our entire programme, so we got a lot of information to go through and learn from.”
