Mark Webber completed a useful 113 laps on a sunny day in Jerez as he finished day two of the second pre-season test as the fifth fastest driver.
“The car ran very well and we're continuing to learn,” said the Australian driver. “It's very early days at the moment in terms of performance and there's a long way to go before the first race, but we've got some good mileage in, which is important.”
Ian Morgan, Head of Race Engineering at Red Bull, explained that the first two days in Jerez had gone to plan, and that the team were making good progress with their preparations for the new season.
“We continued to evaluate the new Pirelli tyres today, as well as testing some new aerodynamic components and development parts,” he explained. “It was a productive day; we concentrated on long runs and completed our programme. We've had good reliability and Mark's had a solid two days in the car.”
Sebastian Vettel is back in the RB7 tomorrow, and he will be on testing duty for the final two days of the test session.
