Webber happy with first taste of RB4
24 January 2008 – After David Coulthard had two days in the cockpit of the new Red Bull car (one at Jerez last week and another in Valencia), yesterday it was Mark Webber's turn to try RB4 for the first time.
After making adjustments to his seat and driving position, Webber got down to business and the car ran almost faultlessly all day. The Australian got acclimatised to what will be his home for this year's eighteen races and, apart from the usual development work, he also did some aero testing with generally positive results.
"I'm happy with the new car," Webber said. "The first day has been encouraging and, so far, it seems to be a big step forward from last year in terms of reliability and speed, which is great. Now we need to work with what we've got and get it as fast as possible before Melbourne. We've got a big four weeks coming up."
