Red Bull: It’s a real shame for fans sitting in the grandstands

6 July, 2012

Jul.6 (Red Bull Press Release) Team and drivers review the first day of the British Grand Prix weekend, Round 9 of the 2012 Formula 1 world championship, at Silverstone.

Car 1, Sebastian Vettel:
“If there’s too much standing water on track we can’t go out, as we aquaplane pretty quickly. I think Senna went off and it shows how quickly it can happen. It’s a real shame for the fans sitting in the grandstands waiting for the cars to come out. I feel for them. We got in a bit of running in the end, but for us it’s not so useful, as you can’t really try anything in these conditions. I think weather will be the most important factor in determining the rest of the weekend. Hopefully it gets a bit better tomorrow so we can get ready for qualifying.”

Car 2, Mark Webber:
“It’s a real shame for the fans today. All the drivers and everyone in the teams are thinking of them because it wasn’t the best day for action, but obviously we have to have an eye on the tyres for the rest of the weekend. There’s a good chance we might need them, so we had to be careful with how many laps we did. You’ve got to take your hat off to the spectators and the support that they showed in absolutely awful conditions. I just really hope that a lot of them are back tomorrow because we have no choice but to get on with it then!”
