Mark Webber says he is "feeling comfortable so far" after setting the fastest time of Friday practice for the German Grand Prix.

Webber was faster than his Red Bull team-mate Sebastian Vettel in both free practice sessions and headed Fernando Alonso in the afternoon having been second to the Ferrari during the morning session. Although it appeared to be close between Red Bull and Ferrari, Webber said that it would be foolish to discount McLaren at this stage of the weekend, and that he felt he was fully prepared for the forecast mixed conditions after a productive days work.

"So far so good; the car feels pretty good here. Fernando and Seb are really quick as well and you never know when McLaren might turn up tomorrow too.

"I haven't been watching them too much today, we've been concentrating on ourselves and trying to improve the car with each run, that's the most important thing we can do. It's nice if it stays dry, as it's a bit easier to manage, but whatever tomorrow throws at us, we should be ready for it. I'm feeling comfortable so far."
