Red Bull drivers review the opening day of the Malaysian Grand Prix weekend, Round 2 of the 2014 Formula 1 world championship, at Sepang International Circuit.

Sebastian Vettel:

  • First Practice Session: Position: 7, Best Time: 1:41.523, Laps: 9
  • Second Practice Session: Position: 3, Best Time: 1:39.970, Laps: 30

I think we had a good day, obviously Friday timings are not the most important thing in the world but it’s good to be up there and in range of the top guys. I think we had a decent day, not a completely smooth day for both of us, there are still some things to solve on the software side and the programming, but that’s the way it is. I think we have to learn a lot but all in all, I’m quite happy.

Daniel Ricciardo:

  • First Practice Session: Position: 12, Best Time: 1:42.117, Laps: 20
  • Second Practice Session: Position: 7, Best Time: 1:40.276, Laps: 29

I think we learned quite a lot about the short run pace this morning. We were pretty pleased with the progress we made, but it could have been better with the long runs. I think we’ve got some room for improvement, but that’s what tonight’s for. Reliability was good today, so I think we’re pretty pleased with that. It’s always warm here, the humidity is probably the biggest challenge about this place, but it’s all good, you know, it toughens us up a little bit!
