Following overnight rain and a series of showers in both the morning and afternoon sessions, Red Bull driver Mark Webber was left feeling satisfied with the dry running he salvaged on his penultimate pre-season test day of the year in Barcelona.
The Australian, who set the pace with a time of 1:22.693, says there is 'more to come' when he gets back behind the wheel later this week, having been limited to a handful of short runs on the Medium and Soft compound tyres in the late stages of the day.
"It was pretty heavy, there was a big tailwind down to Turn 1," Webber, who completed a total of 90 laps, said of the early weather conditions. "And in other sections it was pretty dusty. The level of wind wasn’t trivial but to be honest it was tricky enough anyway because of the greasy conditions on the track.
"We only got one hour at the end of the day in more stable conditions. We opted to put on a couple of sets of tyres at the end and see how it went and it was OK. We’ve still got more to come, but that was the most we could get done in a short limited programme in dry conditions at the end of the day."
Webber will step aside for team-mate Sebastian Vettel Friday morning, with weather forecasts predicting further rainfall before conditions improve for the weekend.
