Vettel asked about his 'plans for world domination'. "I may be German but I didn't say that... I don't have a moustache." Love it! #F1

Questions now for Vettel in German. "We're making our secret plans," he says, raising his pinkie Dr Evil-style. He's on form today. #F1

Funny moment as we switch to German TV questions. Presenter apologises to crowd for speaking German, Vettel replies...

..."We're making our secret plans for [world domination]" and puts his little finger to the corner of his mouth. He's on good form! #F1 #RB9

Adrian Newey says new Red Bull RB9 an evolutionary car
By Matt Beer and Pablo Elizalde Sunday, February 3rd 2013, 14:01 GMT

Newey: RB9 an evolutionary carRed Bull's technical chief Adrian Newey says the new RB9 is an evolution of the championship-winning car of last year.

Newey admitted the lack of regulation changes for the upcoming season meant there was no big reason to go for a revolutionary design.

"It's an evolutionary car," said Newey during the launch of Red Bull's ninth Formula 1 single-seater.

"There were no big regulation changes over the winter. The most significant change is not the regulations, it's the new Pirelli tyres. We had a quick test in P1 in Brazil but it was very hot and on a green track and in truth we didn't learn a lot."

He added: "It's really been a case of refining the RB8. There are no huge changes. It's very much an evolutionary car. All the principles the same as last year.

"The devil has very much been in the detail with this car. We've tidied up some bits that we felt could be improved on. Development is now the key through the year."

Newey said understanding the new Pirelli tyres will be as key as it was last year, with the Italian manufacturer having altered its products for 2013.

"We need to continue to understand the tyres," he said. "Every time we thought we understood them last year, some fresh surprise would come in and we'd realise it wasn't complete. And they've changed the tyre anyway this year.

"Past experience is that it's only when we get out testing that we really find out about the tyres."

Newey acknowledged that having the car ready in time for the first test of the year was a great effort by Red Bull given how long the 2012 championship battled extended.

"We obviously had a very tight championship battle last year and it was difficult trying to develop last year's car and do the research into this year's car," he said.

"It gave us a very tight timeframe to manufacture this car. To have it here today, two days before the first test, is a remarkable effort."

Mercedes will be doing this in 18 minutes (at 12:30 UK time)

Toro Rosso - 18:00 CET (I think it is 17:00 UK time)

Gary Anderson BBC F1 technical analyst

"At first glance I can't see where the 'step change in performance' Mercedes are talking about is going to come from with their new car.

"There are a few changes here and there, but not necessarily in ways that look like they will be a big advantage.

"One area that is definitely working a bit harder is the front brake ducts, which are more elaborate.

"The nose has the allowed 'vanity panel' to hide the height difference between nose tip and chassis. If you put little ridges on either side of the nose, that can help prevent air spilling over the side. But the way Mercedes have designed their nose it looks like it will exacerbate that problem, which affects the aerodynamics detrimentally.

"The sidepods have a raised outer edge. It's aimed at getting air to the rear but it creates lift, and then there are turning vanes on top to reduce the lift. So that confuses me a little.

"They are trying to use the exhaust for aerodynamic effect at the back, but there is an awful lot of bodywork back there which will block the airflow and reduce the effectiveness of the 'coke-bottle' shape, which is what gives overall downforce, as opposed to the on-throttle downforce you get from the exhausts.

"Unlike the McLaren, which looked a step forward in every area, I wouldn't necessarily say I'm seeing anything too exciting about the Mercedes."
