Red Bull happy with performance as Vettel tops Friday timesheets

1 Mins read

Sebastian Vettel ended Friday in Canada as the fastest driver, with teammate Mark Webber fourth, suggesting that an eight pole position in eight races this season is on the cards for Red Bull tomorrow.

Both drivers complained of a slippery track and high levels of tyre degradation, but they were still happy with the performance of the RB6 around the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.
“It's looking okay for us, we're quite competitive,” said Vettel. “The secret here is the tyres; everyone was sliding around a bit at the end – it was a bit more like rally cross than Formula One! The track started very green this morning, but that's normal and it will improve as the weekend goes on. The secret with these circuits is not to panic, as they tend to come towards you. We only made some small adjustments between the two sessions.”

Webber agreed that track conditions will improve throughout the weekend, but expects a tough fight for pole position tomorrow. “It was a pretty good day – we were pleasantly surprised with the pace,” said the Aussie. “We're going to have a tight fight with everyone tomorrow, but the car ran really well today. There was some graining with the

option tyre, but they'll get better as the track rubbers in, so I'm not worried about it. We're happy with how today went, it was good.”
