Nobody is charging away, says Webber
28 June 2013 – Red Bull driver Mark Webber expects the remainder of the British Grand Prix weekend to be an extremely close affair, with the Australian claiming that "nobody is charging away" at the front of the field after the opening two practice sessions at Silverstone.
Webber, who has twice won at Silverstone, finished second fastest to Nico Rosberg in Friday's afternoon session, trailing his Mercedes rival by just under three tenths.
"We tried to do as much as we could in 90 minutes; we put both compounds on and did different fuel loads, so it was quite a demanding session for the team," said Webber. "We got what we could out of it.
"I think Seb [Vettel] and I ran different compounds and got the information we need for the race. Today we did a snapshot of work for tomorrow, but mostly the focus was for Sunday. I think the race will be quite tight, to be honest I don’t think there’s anyone charging away."
Team-mate Vettel described his day as a positive one, but refused to give an estimation of the outfit's standing ahead of the third and final practice session.
"I think we can be pretty happy, it was a good day," the reigning World Champion commented. "Obviously it was important to get some laps in the dry as we expect dry conditions on Sunday. Now we need to have a look at what we can improve, have a look what the others did and then we’ll know a little bit more for tomorrow."
