Red Bull will not have an F-duct on its car at next weekend's Spanish Grand Prix.

Before leaving China and amid the volcano travel chaos, Red Bull boss Christian Horner said the RB6 could be equipped with a rear wing-stalling device similar to McLaren's in Barcelona, "providing we make it back to Europe" quickly. Ultimately, the ash cloud subsided and teams were not seriously delayed in their preparations for the first European race of 2010.

However, when asked whether his team will be running an F-duct anytime soon, Webber told the BBC: "As soon as possible would be nice, but it's not going to be Barcelona, that's for sure. We don't know when we're going to have it, but we are looking at something, as I'm sure all teams are."
