Bahrain Friday Notes: Red Bull

NEWS STORY
10/03/2006

This is Robert's first day at his new school and he seems to be fitting in quite well with the other boys. He hasn't studied Bahrain-ology much in the past, but he already seems to know his lines. Class-mates head boy David Coulthard and deputy Christian Klien focused on shorter runs than Robert, but the trio completed 64 laps between them.

David Coulthard: "It's still uncertain as to where we are after those two sessions, as we were lap limited. This is due to both available mileage for the total weekend, and also as we were saving tyres for tomorrow. We're having a few problems with front-locking too."

Christian Klien: "We had to save the engine so we only completed three short runs today, one in the first session and two in the second with just a few laps in each. The car felt not too bad, but that's often the way when you're running new tyres. It's when you complete longer runs that the problems start to occur. I drove on used tyres this afternoon, saving the fresh ones for tomorrow. It's well known that we're limited on reliability testing, but the car seems quick over one or two laps. We'll have to see how it is over a race distance on Sunday. "

Robert Doornbos: "Well, my first day in the office with Red Bull! I already feel really welcome and part of the team, we had a long winter and I was really looking forward to today. We started off with some technical problems, which was frustrating, as the third car needs to complete a lot of laps on Friday. So, we lost the first half hour this morning, but I think we made up for it this afternoon. We completed all the work scheduled and I feel I made the right tyre choice for the race guys."
