Here's what Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber had to say after the first day on track at the Shanghai International Circuit...

Car 1, Sebastian Vettel: “It is tight between the cars. I haven’t seen everything, but I think overall we can be quite happy. We tried a lot of things today and now we need to go through everything and see what the best set-up is. If you look at the car, you can see a big difference compared to the set-up we used for Malaysia, but driving it’s hard to say, as I don’t have a comparison to this track. It’s cooler here than at the last two races; I felt more comfortable, but we’ll see. It’s tricky to say if we look competitive. McLaren look good in all conditions.”

First Practice Session
Position: 7, Best Time: 1:39.198, Laps: 12
Second Practice Session    
Position: 3, Best Time: 1:36.160, Laps: 27

 

Car 2, Mark Webber: “The sessions were mixed in terms of weather, but we were able to get some good information. We managed to run slick tyres this morning between showers and this afternoon we did a few long and short runs, so we’re learning a lot quickly, which is important on a Friday. We’ve got a lot of stuff to go through tonight and will continue to find out more tomorrow and on Sunday. We’ve come from a track that’s 50˚C to a cooler circuit, so we have more grip here which helps, but I think overall that we’re moving in the right direction.”

First Practice Session
Position: 6, Best Time: 1:38.977, Laps: 15
Second Practice Session    
Position: 4, Best Time 1:36.433, Laps: 24
