Webber to test RB9 first

Mark Webber will get the honour of driving Red Bull's 2013 challenger first during the upcoming test.

Red Bull will take the covers off their RB9 at the Milton Keynes factory on February 3, and Webber will get behind the wheel of the new car two days later at the first pre-season test at Jerez.

He will also be in action on the Wednesday with triple World Champion Sebastian Vettel set to take over on the final two days.

The second test will take place at the Circuit de Catalunya from February 19 with the Barcelona track also hosting the final test from February 28 until March 3.
