Red Bull Racing Jerez Test Day 2 Report

Red Bull Racing report on the second day of testing at Jerez with Mark Webber at the wheel of the new RB6.

The second day of the current Formula One pre-season test in Jerez provided far better weather conditions than day one and gave Red Bull Racing its first real chance to test the RB6 in the dry.

Any remaining damp track conditions had dried by 1000hrs and, after yesterday’s rain- soaked session, the team were keen to get going. With Mark Webber at the wheel they began its working though their large development programme and concentrated on set-up work, clocking up 100 laps.

After his second day of testing the RB6 (and his last at this first Jerez test), Mark Webber commented: “It’s been a very productive two days. We’ve had a few little niggles here and there with reliability, but despite that we’ve managed to complete quite a few laps with the new car. We’ve had one wet and one dry day and learned a lot on both. We’ve still got quite a bit of testing to go before we get to Bahrain, which we’re going to need to continue to understand the car and keep finding performance. But I’d say we’re off to a pretty solid start and we’ve got a great base to build on.”   The team will continue testing tomorrow when Sebastian Vettel will get his first chance to drive the RB6.

Seb will get some quick ones in no doubt so we will be able to see where we are on the fourth day I think.
