Webber and Red Bull blow away F1 competition again Using Adrian Newey's latest creation, Mark Webber started this week's pre-season test at Barcelona on Thursday with the fastest lap overall. The Red Bull Racing driver set his best lap of 1m21.487s during the morning session.
Ian Morgan, Head of Race Engineering for Red Bull said, “Today was always planned as a race weekend simulation day, so we did some testing along with P3 and qualifying in the morning and a race simulation in the afternoon. Everything went very well up until halfway through the race simulation, when something in the data made us decide to stop the car on track. It was nothing major though and we got the car repaired and back out until the end of the session. It went well today, apart from that small reliability issue.”
Mark Webber said: “We had a pretty good day of testing. We did some simulations and performance items in the morning and a race simulation in the afternoon. We had a precautionary stop in the middle of the race simulation because of a gearbox oil alarm, but the guys got the car turned around pretty quickly and we finished the session, so it wasn’t too bad.”
