Flying start for Red Bull driver Mark Webber in final pre-season testing
Lewis Hamilton edged out in Barcelona
Thursday 28 February 2013
Red Bull driver Mark Webber set the pace in cold and wet conditions on the first day of final Formula One pre-season testing, edging just ahead of Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes.
After Ferrari's Felipe Massa stopped on the track with less than half an hour to go, Webber out-duelled Hamilton as they clocked flying laps just before the session ended. The 36-year-old veteran put in a day's quickest lap of 1min 22.693sec, leaving Hamilton's best effort less than two seconds behind.
Webber said that Red Bull were pleased with the run-up to the new season, when team-mate Sebastian Vettel will defend his world title.
