F1 NEWS >> ‘Emotional’ the word of the week WHILE confirming absolutely that he had full technical support from Red Bull, Mark Webber’s apparent agreement with a media questioner that the team’s ‘emotional’ support appears to be for Sebastian Vettel initiated another round of reaction from both the team and Vettel. “Of course when young, new chargers come onto the block, that’s where the emotion is. That’s the way it is,” responded Webber. “ Which is absolutely fine, because I’ve had a great opportunity and a great car to go and do some great things this year, and I have done that. I’ve got favourites in life. I’ve got people I like to be with. That’s how it is. It’s human nature.” Team boss Christian Horner responded: “I think the team would be greatly hurt to see that Mark has said that, if he has said that, and I can only think it’s been taken out of context because he has a great deal of support within the team.” Overlooking the word ‘emotional’, Vettel suggested that it was he, rather than Webber who had suffered the most this season and he didn’t understand why Webber felt he lacked support: “I think I had lots of ups and downs this year. If something broke, then it tended to break on my car,” said the German. “But do I think there is any conspiracy in the air? No, it’s the last thing I think about. “Obviously there have been a lot of things being said already. I don’t know what he’s said now,” added Vettel. “ The team supplies us with a very good car and that’s ultimately the situation that you want to be in – having a car where you can win races and fight for podiums.” Webber denied he was unhappy at the team and looking to move on next season: “I have a very good relationship with the right people to give me technically a great chance to do a very good job, and that is the most important thing. As long as I am enjoying my driving and performing reasonably well, and it went okay today, so as long as I don’t forget how to drive in the next few months then of course I will be here next year.” Webber has a contract with the team through to the end of 2011. 7
