Red-Bull Racing satisfied

Despite a few problems for Red Bull Ferrari today in testing at Valencia, David Coulthard managed to set the second best time of the four cars present, completing 68 laps in the RB2.

The morning went well on this final day of testing prior to the season, with Coulthard running through an aero programme and doing general set-up work.

The emphasis then switched to tyre testing combined with longer runs.

“Unfortunately, on the first of these runs, the car suffered an engine problem and David actually spun on his own oil,” explained Chief Test Engineer, Ian Morgan.

“We therefore lost some time in the afternoon, fitting a new engine, but after that we had a productive time. The car’s actual pace seems pretty good, as David put in some quick laps late in the day, even though by then it was very windy.”
