Webber happy with productive test

Mark Webber happy with a productive finish to a solid test for Red Bull at Catalunya
Mark Webber said he was happy with a productive test for Red Bull Racing after posted the second quickest time on the final day at testing in Barcelona.

The Red Bull driver completed fewer laps than most of his rivals as he evaluated a series of development components on the new RB7, but was still at the sharp end of the times as he was bettered only by the Ferrari of Felipe Massa.

Speaking at the end of the day, the Australian said the team had done well throughout the weekend and now had plenty of useful data to check over before the next test – which it has since been confirmed will take place back at Catalunya next month.

“Not too bad today,” he said. “We had a few niggles here and there but we did well and that's been the case over the whole weekend. We had a very productive test, no question about it. We have a whole raft of data to go through, so we'll see where the next test is and get ready for that.”

Head of race engineering Ian Morgan was pleased with the way the four days had gone, with the rain on Sunday that prevented Webber from running through his scheduled programme being the only minor issue faced.

“Today we got through quite a lot of work in evaluating some development components on the suspension, brakes and aero package,” he said. “We got through the whole programme without any difficulties so, all in all, a useful day's work.

“We set out a pretty ambitious schedule for this test and I'm pleased to say that we managed to get through almost all of it. Obviously, the weather yesterday hampered us a little but even then we got some wet weather running in, which helps us understand the tyres a bit better. Overall, I think we are quite pleased with the progress we've made here.”
