Mark Webber says that the Buddh’s circuits slower corners provide its stiffest challenge.
Webber, who was third in the morning session and fifth in the afternoon, said he enjoyed the track.
“It’s got quick left/rights where the car is in fourth and fifth gear, which is nice, instead of second gear everywhere,” said Webber. “It’s a good track.
“As usual some of the low speed stuff is quite challenging, even though it’s slow. You always think that the faster corners are more challenging, but Turn 3 is for example quite tricky, and also Turn 4 is not straightforward. They are probably the most challenging and frustrating corners to get right, a lot of lap time in there. But the quick stuff is always rewarding.”
Webber said that he was happier with the car in FP1 than in FP2.
“This morning was good, this afternoon it was a different girl, she wasn’t talking me that well! We’ll get it back tomorrow.”
