Red Bull Barcelona Test Day 4 Report

After completing a full race simulation yesterday, Mark Webber rounded off Red Bull Racing’s second week of testing with the RB8 by completing the week’s programme of development work with the new car.

Mark said: “Today we got through a lot of stuff! We tested a lot of elements and everything worked well, especially since we had such a big programme. That can mean not a lot of laps and a lot of garage time, but we gathered a lot of good information today and that’s a pleasing way to finish the week.
“We have a lot of work to do back in Milton Keynes over the next few days to get the car ready for the next test. We’ve done well over these two first tests and the feeling is pretty good.”
Mark’s Race Engineer Ciaron Pilbeam said: “We had quite a lot of work to get through today, basically finishing off the performance and data gathering work we started at the beginning of the week. It went well and we got through everything we wanted to, even though it was pretty busy this morning. Unlike yesterday, we had no issues at all and it was a good day’s work.
“This test has been a good one I think in terms of information gathered, so we’ll take it all back to the factory, have a look at all the data and try to apply what we learn from it when we come back here next week.”
