Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber were left wondering how close the Red Bull is to its rivals this weekend in Monaco after a Free Practice 2 session that was disrupted by rain.

For what its worth, Webber finished the day seventh fastest, whilst his German team-mate was tenth.

“We didn't learn too much from today due to the conditions,” said Vettel. “It wasn't ideal as this morning we had a red flag and then it rained this afternoon; as a result it's hard to say where we are. We didn't have a lot of grip due to the rain, it was very slippery on track and there were a lot of cars out at the same time – but it was the same for everyone. The weather can change quickly here and now you see there is sunshine again already.”

Webber also pointed out that conditions were the same for all the teams today, but sort of suggested that some teams were definitely on the pace already.

“It was not easy for us, as for all the teams today, and we've got some work to do in the next 24 hours,” said Webber. “There are clearly some very quick cars and we need to see where we can improve. Obviously it was limited running for everyone, so we didn't do as much as we would have liked; but that's how it went today and Monaco's like that – it throws up some challenges. The track's quite inconsistent in terms of grip – but we did learn some things today.”
