Mark Webber concedes his Red Bull team needs more pace to be at the front in the Canadian Grand Prix after a low-key start in practice. The Australian finished in seventh position today, nearly a second behind pace-setter Fernando Alonso.
Webber, whose teammate Sebastian Vettel was second quickest but nearly four tenths off, admitted his team was still lacking speed.
"Fernando was quick but we need to get a bit more pace," said Webber. "It was not too bad. We drove around and not quite quick enough yet.
"We did all our fuel loads, so we were pretty compromised with the red flags in the end. Not too bad -- we need to chip away and get a bit quicker. We were all on a pretty good level, McLaren and Ferrari as well. The pace pretty close but we need to find a bit more pace at the moment."
Vettel had a difficult start to the weekend after crashing during first practice, although the German bounced back in the afternoon.
"I was a bit quick and lost the rear," he said of the crash. "By the time I hit the wall it was low speed. The crash was quite mild and there was not too much damage to fix. It is not necessary to do things like that."
