Mark Webber notched up his second British Grand Prix victory in three years on Sunday, closing to within 13 points of championship leader Fernando Alonso and further strengthening his case for a contract extension at Red Bull. The Australian is only the second driver to win two races this year, alongside Alonso, after overhauling his Spanish rival during the final stint of the race. Key to his victory had been a superb qualifying performance, before maintaining that second place off the line and staying within touching distance of the Ferrari throughout. “I think it was a very interesting race. I thought at the start Fernando had very good pace. A bit of strategy here and there,” he said on the podium. “Obviously, Fernando started on different tyres. But I never gave up, kept pushing and it didn't really work out for Fernando at the end.” Webber is yet to secure a contract to race inF1 next year, but yesterday’s victory is sure to strengthen his case to stay in the sport for a 12th consecutive season. “[The win] helps my situation to stay in Formula One. At the start of the year I didn't have a contract, I'm pushing to get a contract for next year,” he continued. “It’s going reasonably well, I’ve got a few points, a couple of wins and I will work very hard to try and stay in Formula One next year.” WEBBER WIN AIDS CONTRACT CHAT F1 >>> SILVERSTONE 28 GPWEEK.com // PARTNERS:
