Australian GP, RED BULL RACING - Free Practice 1 & 2

31.03.2006: Australian GP, RED BULL RACING - Free Practice 1 & 2

David Coulthard (Car 14):
1st Practice Position: 11 Best Time: 1:29.676 Laps: 9
2nd Practice Position: 13 Best Time: 1:28.531 Laps: 18
Chassis Number: 3

"We had a productive day, as we were able to take advantage of the fact that we'd only done ten laps in Malaysia. As a result, my engine is 50 laps in credit, which means we could do more than normal today and get up to speed in case the weather's wet tomorrow. I wasn't evaluating tyres today, as we're saving our allocation for tomorrow. Other than that - not much else to report, until we get into the tyre evaluation tomorrow."

Christian Klien (Car 15):
1st Practice Position: 10 Best Time: 1:29.601 Laps: 7
2nd Practice Position: 21 Best Time: 1:29.879 Laps: 9
Chassis Number: 2

"I had a new engine for the race weekend, so was limited on distance today. I went out just for one run in the first session. The track was very dirty and there wasn't much grip, you could see a lot of cars spinning off the circuit. In the second session, I did two runs on a heavier fuel load to enable us to get a decent set up for Sunday. It's good fun to drive here, as it's almost like a road circuit.

Robert Doornbos (Car 37):
1st Practice Position: 2 Best Time: 1:28.559 Laps: 19
2nd Practice Position: 20 Best Time: 1:29.876 Laps: 32
Chassis Number: 1

"I really, really enjoy this circuit, and it's a lot of fun in a Formula One car here. This morning we started off really well. Everyone's very positive after last year's Australian result, and to start in the top two this morning, trading places with Anthony (Davidson) for first place, was really cool. In the afternoon, we were doing longer runs and my times were pretty consistent. That will help the guys make a judgement regarding the tyres and I wish them good luck for the weekend - I'll be cheering them on."
