As usual at the summer Silverstone test, there were more guests, fans andspectators in the F1 paddock that can be seen filling entire circuits at some ofthe less popular grands prix on the calendar. None of this affected the work ofthe Red Bull Racing test team, as they got on with the job of preparing for theBritish Grand Prix which takes place at this track on 6th July.
Mark Webber was in the cockpit today, working on various aero andmechanical development programmes. There were no problems and the teamcompleted more than the planned mileage, which could be a good thing asthere is talk of rain for tomorrow. Mark is due to continue driving onWednesday when the emphasis changes to British GP preparation, looking atcar set-up and evaluation of the Bridgestone tyres on offer.
