Red Bull / Webber testing update

Something strange happened on the last day of the Barcelona F1 test: Red Bull Racing driver David Coulthard (Mark Webber’s teammate) went fastest! How did that happen?

RBR’s cars have been slow and unreliable for weeks, but on the day that team owner Dietrich Mateschitz blew into town, DC managed to pull a quick one out of the bag. I’d love to have the car weighed, the fuel tested and the tyres reviewed for ‘softening agents’ after that one. Then again, maybe they were just genuinely fast!

Mark Webber managed exactly half as many laps on the day as DC due to lingering reliability issues.

Here’s my latest testing summary…
