1 Mins read

Red Bull concluded their pre-season testing in Barcelona today with Sebastian Vettel completed 64 laps, finishing the day eighth.

Reflecting on the whole of the pre-season programme, the reigning world champion sounded positive about his chances in the opening race, but would not commit to any firm analysis of the team’s performance in comparison with their rivals.

“The preparation has been good,” said the German. “It was a long winter and we did a lot of kilometres, I think more than we ever have done before during testing, which is positive. Now we are just looking forward to Melbourne.

“If you ask me about performance, all I can say is I think we are there or thereabouts, and, as I keep saying, it's impossible to know until we get to Australia. But am I in a positive mood? Yeah, I think I am!”

Ian Morgan, Head of Race Engineering at the team, agreed that they were in good shape as they head to Australia. “We have a reliable car, that has been good out of the box, and the performance looks good too,” he said. “You never know how things will shake up until the end of Q3 in Melbourne, and while there are things you could always do better, I think we've done our homework well.”
