AUSTRALIAN GP – FRIDAY PRACTICE  

SEBASTIAN VETTEL  

First Practice Session: Position: 7, Best Time: 1:32.793, Laps: 10

Second Practice Session: Position: 4, Best Time: 1:30.381, Laps: 41

“In a way it’s a relief today, the fact that we were running, we didn’t have any problems, the balance was good and the performance looked alright. In the end Friday times are not worth a lot, but it’s better to be close to the top rather than somewhere towards the back, so I’m very happy with that. We will do what we can to prepare for tomorrow and Sunday, but let’s see where we are then – the most important thing is that we finish.”

DANIEL RICCIARDO

First Practice Session: Position: 5, Best Time: 1:32.599, Laps: 26

Second Practice Session: Position: 6, Best Time: 1:30.538, Laps: 38

“I knew the guys were doing everything they could since testing but still, we didn’t expect to do that many laps today, so I’m really happy and pleased for them. I think we have to be pretty positive with where we ended up today. We expected Mercedes to be quickest, but we were within a second of them today so that’s a lot better than we thought. Let’s see if it’s the same story after qualifying tomorrow, but for today we’re pleased.”

NAME THAT THING

Formula One’s a complex business, full of technically innovative stuff and super high-tech terms that mere mortals can’t possibly understand… which is why we’ve decided to make it even more indecipherable with our new quiz Name That Thing! We’ve taken a close-up picture of something from the garage, that the team uses all the time (not the tea urn) and we’re asking you to name this mystery item. The correct answer will be revealed on our website tomorrow (www.infiniti-redbullracing.com). There’s no prize, but what we can offer is bragging rights over your peers and huge amounts of pride as the biggest know-all in the paddock. Happy guessing!
