"An overexcited fan who managed to make their way into Mark Webber's garage at the Melbourne Grand Pix nearly ruined the Aussie star's home town race.The fan, who managed to elude staff on a VIP guided tour, managed to damage a vital aerodynamic component on Webber's Red Bull car just an hour before he was due to start qualifying.The fan was leaning on the multi-million dollar car while taking a picture when he damaged the vital component - of which there was reportedly only one replacement in reserve."
"Team technical boss Adrian Newey says KERS is an on-going issue for Red Bull and has strongly hinted that the team will be without the power-boosting mechanism in Shanghai, as they were in the first race in Melbourne.
Vettel won his second successive race of the season on Sunday, starting from pole position and valiantly keeping his rivals at bay until the flag, despite the Kers problem.
Newey admits that the team is having trouble coming to grips with the device.
"The reality is that it is a system in its infancy," Newey told Autosport. "We are not a manufacturer team so we are having to develop KERS ourselves, which has not been our area of expertise in the past.
"We are also doing it on a limited resource, limited budget and with limited experience, so we are on a rapid learning curve.
"How long it takes us to get to the top of that learning curve remains to be seen."
Newey forecast the team would have a long struggle with KERS as new problems keep cropping up."
Oh and don't forget that ceased spring!!!!!
