GP Week : Issue 84A
"I am very comfortable with my side of things," Mark Webber reported after Sunday's race. "I saw Sebastian coming down my inside, so I stayed tight because I wanted him to be on the dirty stuff as we approached the braking area. I held my line and he moved across on me; there wasn't much contact, but you don't need much at 300kph for it to end in tears." "The team had asked me to turn down my engine," he continued, "which is what I did. Whether or not Seb got the same message, I don't yet know, but that might explain why he was suddenly so much quicker than me along the straight. "Of course this outcome was a very unfortunate result for Red Bull Racing because Seb's DNF meant we gave McLaren 28 points on a plate. But let's not forget that I finished third; I've had worse days in my life." "There were still 17 laps to go at the time of the accident, but I'm confident that I could have won this race. I wasn't quite as happy on the prime tyres as I'd been on the options, but the car still felt okay; I felt in control of the race. "Seb and I have to sit down and chat about what happened. We'll probably have a difference of opinion about what happened until we go to our graves, but we're both adults and we need to press on. If we'd been fighting for 18th and 19th positions when the accident occurred, no-one would have cared; as it was, we were fighting for the lead and it's all anyone wants to know about." Webber: I've had worse days" F1 NEWS >> 7
