Mark Webber was at the wheel of the RB7 again today for day two of Red Bull Racing’s current test session in Jerez, Southern Spain. It was another sunny day, with cool early morning temperatures increasing to around 18°C. Notching up 113 laps, the team completed its planned programme for the day.

Ian Morgan, Head of Race Engineering said: “We continued to evaluate the new Pirelli tyres today, as well as testing some new aerodynamic components and development parts. It was a productive day; we concentrated on long runs and completed our programme. We’ve had good reliability and Mark’s had a solid two days in the car.”

Mark Webber said: “The car ran very well and we’re continuing to learn. It’s very early days at the moment in terms of performance and there’s a long way to go before the first race, but we’ve got some good mileage in, which is important.”

Sebastian will be back in the cockpit tomorrow, as he takes over driving duties for the final two days of the test.
