Red Bull drivers report from the first day of the Italian Grand Prix weekend, Round 12 of the 2013 Formula 1 World Championship, at Monza.

Sebastian Vettel:

  • First Practice Session: Position: 4, Best Time: 1:25.753, Laps: 26
  • Second Practice Session: Position: 1, Best Time: 1:24.453, Laps: 39

“It will be very tight this weekend, as we saw in the first practice. It will be close tomorrow in qualifying with quite a few cars separated by only a few hundredths of a second. There are a few things we still need to do to optimise the car, as there are two or three corners where we are sliding more than we would like. It’s positive today, but it’s only a Friday.”

Mark Webber:

  • First Practice Session: Position: 8, Best Time: 1:26.103, Laps: 27
  • Second Practice Session: Position: 2, Best Time: 1:25.076, Laps: 39

“We seem okay here, although it’s only Friday. We seemed good on Friday in Spa and then everyone was with us in P3. But, that said, the car feels good although we have some work to do to prepare for the race, so let’s see tomorrow.” (Red Bull F1)
