Webber: The real work starts tomorrow

Red Bull drivers Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber split the driving duties at testing in Valencia on Wednesday, with Vettel driving in the morning, and Webber in the afternoon. The team continued testing its all-new RB7 and completed further system checks, as well as focused on some aerodynamic development work. Webber will take over full testing duties on Thursday, a day in which the Aussie driver says the 'real' work begins, after the team lost some testing time in the afternoon changing drivers due to some driver installation issues. Head of Race Engineering, Ian Morgan said: “Sebastian pretty much ran to schedule this morning; there were a few minor delays, but nothing significant. Unfortunately we lost some time changing drivers this afternoon due to some driver installation issues. Once Mark’s testing session got underway, he was able to complete two runs and begin acclimatising to the new car.” Webber added: “I didn’t get so long in the car today, so we will start the real work tomorrow. There was a bit of a problem with the installation, something with the pedals, so it took a bit longer than we expected. It wasn’t the smoothest day, but we’re back tomorrow – it’s great that the guys have got the car here for the first test and I’m looking forward to driving it more.”
