Red Bull Racing F1 - Spa-Francorchamps Test, Day 3

12.07.2007: Red Bull Racing F1 - Spa-Francorchamps Test, Day 3

Mark Webber 1:47.699 44 laps

(fastest lap K. Raikkonen, 1.47.042)

Circuit length: 7.004 km 

Mark Webber's return to Spa was not a straightforward one as a close encounter with a white line on dry weather tyres on a damp track saw the Australian spin, doing some damage to front and rear wings on the RB3. Once repaired, he was back out again on a dry track until an oil cooler problem robbed the team of the last 50 minutes of track time.

"The weather and a couple of mechanical bothers meant that overall, we did not cover the sort of mileage we had been hoping for over the three days," commented

Chief Test Engineer Ian Morgan. "However, on the positive side, we have learnt a lot about a track we had not visited for a while, we completed our tyre comparison programme, as well as trying Bridgestone's rain tyres and we also signed off some new aero and mechanical components for use at next week's European GP."
