Red Bull's Mark Webber believes his team is in a better position than it was at this stage last year, describing two 'very good' days behind the wheel of the RB9 at the Circuito de Jerez. The Australian will make way for team-mate Sebastian Vettel on Thursday and is confident that the German driver will inherit a well prepared car.
"I think in terms of consistency it’s great," explained 36-year-old Webber, who ended up fourth quickest at the end of Wednesday's track action. "I’m very happy with the car and myself. I might have bombed a few laps here and there, but I’ve done 170 or more, which is a good total for the first two days with a new car. Overall, it’s been very good. The car gives me the confidence to push pretty hard and that’s always an indication that you have something you can build on.
"We’ve learned a lot more since yesterday and I’m sure that will continue tomorrow with Sebastian. I think we’ve put the car in a good position for him. If you ask me where I think we are compared to this time last year, I’d say we’re in a better position, but of course a lot of that is down to a lack of regulation changes."
Webber completed the first two days of testing at Jerez with new race engineer Simon Rennie, the man who served the same role for Kimi Räikkönen at Lotus in 2012.
