Mixed Friday for Red Bull Drivers but Vettel Dominance Continues

1 Mins read

Sebastian Vettel continued is dominant start to the season by topping the timesheets in both Friday practice sessions today in China, whilst Red Bull team-mate Mark Webber finished the afternoon session down in tenth place.

“We had a good day today, but it's only Friday and so it's early in the race weekend,” said Vettel, clearly not complacent or over-confident about the prospect of a third race victory in three races. “We found a good rhythm and we're happy with the car. There's still a lot to do and I think it will be tight tomorrow and on Sunday, so we'll look where we can improve. But, today we had no big issues.”

Despite struggling slightly in the afternoon practice session, Webber was second-fastest this morning, and finished the day relatively happy.

“I didn't have the best P2, particularly on the short run with the new tyres, which is why my time is down a little, but the long run on the option tyre was good,” said the Australian. “We'll look at KERS tonight – we'd like to run it this weekend of course. Generally it was a good Friday, we learned a lot and the car was reliable.”
