Red Bull: Overall we can be pretty happy

Red Bull drivers review the first day of the British Grand Prix weekend, Round 8 of the 2013 Formula 1 World Championship, at Silverstone.

Sebastian Vettel:

  • First Practice Session: Position: -, Best Time: No time, Laps: 4
  • Second Practice Session: Position: 3, Best Time: 1:32.680, Laps: 31

“I think overall we can be pretty happy, it was a good day. Obviously it was important to get some laps in the dry as we expect dry conditions on Sunday. Now we need to have a look at what we can improve, have a look what the others did and then we’ll know a little bit more for tomorrow. Today we tried to do both short and long runs. For FP3 tomorrow, we need to decide if we go for short runs, to prepare for qualifying, or long runs trying to look more at the race set up.”

Mark Webber:

  • First Practice Session: Position: -, Best Time: No time, Laps: 1
  • Second Practice Session: Position: 2, Best Time: 1:32.547, Laps: 26

“We tried to do as much as we could in 90 minutes; we put both compounds on and did different fuel loads as well, so it was quite a demanding session for the team. In the end we got what we could out of it. I think that both Seb and I ran different compounds and got the information we need for the race. Today we did a snapshot of work for tomorrow, but mostly the focus was for Sunday. I think the race will be quite tight, to be honest I don’t think there’s anyone charging away.” (Red Bull)
