Although neither Red Bull driver is willing to predict how they will perform in Valencia, both acknowledge that a good qualifying performance is needed...

Sebastian Vettel: "In Valencia, we drive an average of more than 200kph, which means it's one of the fastest street circuits in Formula One. Overtaking is possible, but only with some risk. The reason is that the air turbulence created by cars driving closely behind each other doesn't disappear as it normally would due to the high walls around the track; you lose grip and, in some extreme cases, you have to lift the throttle. The start-finish straight in Valencia is special because it's not very long, it turns into a fast right corner which we take at 290kph."

Mark Webber: "Obviously it's very difficult to predict how we might go in Valencia, as we've clearly seen with seven winners and plenty of different podiums. Our main goal is to improve our positions in both championships, so personally for me in the Drivers' Championship and of course the team is looking to keep a good margin in the Constructors'. I know everyone in Milton Keynes has been working incredibly hard in between the two races."
