Red Bull Racing reacts to the opening day of running for the German Grand Prix at the Nurburgring.
Sebastian Vettel – 2nd:
"We had a problem in the morning when the engine cut off in Turn One, so we lost quite a lot of track time. Thankfully it was dry again this afternoon, so the overall loss was not that big. It was quite tricky this afternoon as the circuit was still very slippery, making it hard to get a good lap and bringing the tyres in seems to be very crucial here. On top of that, the wind is very heavy and is playing some tricks, especially during braking in the last sector, but I think we have a good car, so I'm looking forward to tomorrow. Obviously, we still have plenty of work to do. We've done a lot of testing today so we will look now at what's best in order to be well prepared for qualifying."
Mark Webber – 4th:
"That was a pretty good day for us. We expected changeable and cool conditions, which are so typical of the Nuerburgring, so there were no surprises with that. We did the normal Friday stuff, comparing the tyres and it seems pretty straightforward. We got a reasonable amount of laps in and have some good bits to go through tonight. The guys worked very well today and we were able to do everything we needed, so onwards to tomorrow!"
