Red Bull Racing's Mark Webber maintained he wasn't disappointed today, despite ending practice for this Sunday's F1 2010 Belgian Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps down in 18th place.

Webber, who leads the championship ahead of this Sunday's race, the 13th round in the championship, was seventh in FP1 this morning. However this afternoon he could only post the 18th best time, more than 2.5 seconds off the pace.

With conditions mixed though, and with him failing to set a good time near the end, he wasn't concerned: "Today was a bit of a messy day with the changing conditions, but it was actually pretty good for us," Webber said. "We got some good information to go through and I'm looking forward to tomorrow.

"There are a few quick guys out there, but we're not slow either. It's hard to get a feel for what everyone's doing with the changing weather. It's a beautiful track here, it's special - today we got to sample it in all conditions."

Sebastian Vettel, who was quicker in both sessions in the sister RB6 - fourth in FP1 and sixth in FP2, was also happy with his work.

"It's always tricky with these conditions," Vettel continued, "track time is limited and tyres are limited too. We would love to run more despite the rain, but we don't have so many tyres and looking at the weekend we might need them for qualifying and the race, so we didn't want to use them all today.

"We were looking at the balance, it feels good, but it's hard when the conditions are changing. We still have some work to do for Saturday and Sunday," he concluded.
