Word just in – with only 15 minutes before qualifying starts – is that Red Bull Racing team principal Christian Horner has confirmed that Mark Webber will not be running KERS on his RB7 ahead of qualifying and tomorrow’s race.
Meanwhile, championship leader Sebastian Vettel – the hot favourite to take pole position and the race win at Shanghai – will be running the device in qualifying and race conditions.
Webber’s build-up to this afternoon’s qualifying session has been dogged by what are believed to be KERS-specific issues, which saw the Australian finish well down the order in second and third practice.
