There is a saying that goes, "into every life a little rain must fall" and indeedsome rain did fall on Silverstone today, but that was not the worst of Red BullRacing's problems, as a hard-to-identify electrical problem cost Mark Webbera lot of track time.
After an installation lap, the RB4 developed a misfire whichwas diagnosed and fixed but it later returned, eventually requiring an enginechange, even if the cause of the problem was not the engine itself. Thismeant Mark only managed four laps in the morning. In the afternoon, theprogramme centred on race preparation for the British Grand Prix, but,unfortunately, it was interrupted by red flags. Despite only completing limitedmileage Mark was happy with the set-up work which he completed and handsover driving duties to David Coulthard for today's session.
