Red Bull Complete ‘Pretty Solid’ Test In Jerez

1 Mins read

Red Bull completed the second pre-season test in Jerez today with Sebastian Vettel at the wheel completing 90 laps.

The team continued to evaluate the new Pirelli tyres and also tested some aerodynamic components and development suspension parts.

“It's been a pretty solid test overall,” said Ian Morgan, Head of Race Engineering, looking back over the last four days. “We've got some good mileage and the car has been reliable. Our main focus during the test has been on understanding the tyres and how to get the best from them and I think we've made some good progress with that.”

The next test session starts in Barcelona next Friday.
