Webber dominates Friday testing at Jerez
Mark Webber was back driving the RB6 and began the day on extreme wet tires, as conditions remained damp from overnight rain. He then switched to intermediate tires and by 1100hrs was running on dry tires. A small mechanical issue early afternoon cost the team around two hours of running time, but Mark was able to get back out on track with plenty of time remaining and completed a series of short and long runs to test various chassis set-ups and analyze tire degradation.

At the end of the session, Ian Morgan, Head of Race Engineering, said “It’s good to finally get some dry conditions and complete some proper runs on dry tires, which we’ve done very little of with this car so far. We did 115 laps today, which is pretty good; things look promising.”

Mark Webber said: “We’re certainly showing some good form in terms of reliability, but we always need to work on performance; you never know that the other teams are doing. We’re in a good position at the moment to build up to the first race – it’s close, but there’s also quite a way to go, as other teams have no doubt planned developments for Bahrain. We’re doing the work we need to do, in order to understand the car more.”
