Abu Dhabi GP practice quotes: Red Bull Racing

Red Bull Racing's Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber comment on practice for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix
Sebastian Vettel – 4th:
So, that was the last Friday practice of this year. I'd like to say thanks to Renault – many people didn't believe that we'd succeed without having to change an engine, but here we are having completed a lot of miles on another Friday without a single problem. Abu Dhabi is a new circuit, so new conditions – including starting driving in the daylight and finishing the session at night, which is quite exciting. Obviously, the circuit was very green and slippery to begin with, but overall it's quite a thrill to drive, with some good corners. It's also pretty special to go under a hotel! Performance wise, we're looking quite good. We didn't know what to expect around here, but it seems as though we're quite competitive, although we will have to wait to see how competitive. Even though it's a new track, it was a normal Friday practice and we were testing which tyre works best.

Mark Webber – 7th:
A productive first day at a new track. We had an engine change between P1 and P2 – the guys did a brilliant job to get the car turned around in time. Other than that, we got on with the normal tyre comparisons and other tests we do on a Friday – so, although a new track, a normal Friday. The track's pretty good – it's not Spa, but it's also not Bahrain! It's not bad. There was a difference in clarity between driving in the afternoon for P1 and in the early evening during P2 – it's a different atmosphere when the lights are on, but we're used to that from Singapore.
