Business as usual for RBR
Having been caught out by the engine torque map investigations, RBR was back to hard work today as they are back to a level playing field. And as with everyone else, their programme was affected by the rain but this only means that they are better prepared for a wet race.
Mark Webber: “We got some running in the wet and the dry, but we’ve got work to do. I’m not super happy with that today, but it’s good that it’s only Friday. We seem to be going okay in some places, but losing time in others – so we’ll go through it tonight. I need to work on the balance. There’s no change from the engine mapping amend.”
Sebastian Vettel: “There’s still a lot of room for improvement and things that we need to do a bit better for the weekend – then we can see where we are. We got a decent run on the primes which was important and we learned things from that, but it looks tight. Unfortunately the weather caught us out, same as everyone, but we will see what we get tomorrow.”
