Webber Signs with Red Bull for 2012

October 4, 2011

Mark Webber

“Red Bull Racing is pleased to announce that Mark Webber’s contract has been extended for another year, meaning the Australian will continue to drive for the team in 2012.”

Mark Webber said: “I want to continue racing at the top in Formula One so it’s a no-brainer to remain at Red Bull Racing for another year. My motivation to achieve the best results possible both for myself and the team is still very high.

“Over the past five years, we have worked hard and proved that we can design and build a competitive and championship-winning car, and I’m looking forward to putting the car and myself on the limit again each and every race weekend in 2012.”

Christian Horner said: “When we sat down and started talking about 2012, it was immediately obvious that Mark and the team wanted to continue our successful relationship. This meant agreeing an extension for 2012 was very straightforward. Mark knows the team well, having been with us since 2007, and his motivation, fitness and commitment is as high as it has ever been.

“The pairing of Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel is a very strong one, they push each other hard and we are extremely happy the pairing will remain unchanged for a fourth season.”

Red Bull’s Drivers for 2012

July 13, 2011

Mark Webber

Christian Horner, Red Bull’s Team Principal, has been discussing his driver line up for next year: “We are not talking to anyone else. With Mark, it tends to be relatively straightforward. It’s like a marriage, both sides have to agree, but it should be fairly quick. We have agreed we will sit down later in the summer, but we are not looking at anyone else.”

When asked what he thought about Lewis Hamilton joining the Red Bull team next year he replied “Pretty slim to nil. As far as we understand, Lewis is also a McLaren driver for next year, but that’s a question you need to ask him. We’re happy with our two drivers and we don’t have three cars. We have a long-term contract with Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber’s doing a fantastic job. At the moment we can’t see any reason why we would want to change that.”

Commenting on his meeting with Lewis Hamilton during the Canadian Grand Prix weekend he said “He’s obviously a bit frustrated with how things are going at the moment. He’s a great driver and I can understand why any driver, not just Lewis, would want to be in a Red Bull car but you have to look at the dynamics and harmony in the team, how the two drivers work together.

“It’s all about the team and I can’t imagine a better pairing to satisfy that criteria than the two guys we have. We’re entering the ‘silly season’ of F1 contracts and there is a lot of speculation about Lewis’s future, but we’re very happy with the drivers we have.

“We have a long-term contract with Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber’s doing a fantastic job, as you can see today, and at the moment we can’t see any reason why we would want to change that but we’ll sit down with Mark at some time later in the summer.”

Webber Disobeyed Team Orders

July 11, 2011

Mark Webber confirmed that he continued to chase his team mate, Sebastian Vettel for second place in the closing laps of the British Grand Prix despite orders to the contrary. Team Principal, Christian Horner was disappointed at the news and will be speaking to Mark Webber in private. “At the end of the day the team is the biggest thing, and no individual is bigger than the team.

“I can understand Mark’s frustration in that, but had it been the other way around it would have been exactly the same. It happened a couple of years ago in Turkey when exactly the same thing happened with Sebastian, so it makes no sense from a team point of view to risk both of your cars.

“It was obvious that neither was going to concede and, as we saw with Massa and Hamilton at the last corner, who very nearly made contact, it made no sense from a team point of view to allow them to continue to fight over those last couple of laps.

“Mark obviously chose to ignore that and didn’t make the pass in any event, but that is the team’s position. It is something that he and I will talk about in private. He is free to fight for race wins. He qualified on pole position here. He had the ability, the opportunity to win this race. It didn’t pan out for him today but we will continue to give him every chance to do so.

“From a team perspective, I made it quite clear in the drivers’ briefing this morning in front of the engineers, that the biggest thing today was about getting a team result in front of all of the staff who put in so much effort into both of those cars, for the Constructors’ Championship and the drivers’ championship. Now both drivers have come away with Sebastian having extended his lead in the world championship, Mark having moved into second in the world championship and the team having increased its lead in the Constructors’ Championship.

“At the end of the day, the team championship is every bit as important as the drivers’ championship to us and we risked giving away 33 points today in the last three laps by allowing our drivers to fight it out. As we have seen previously, that can have dire consequences. We said okay, we have allowed them to race up until that point and, with three laps to go, rather than risk both of them being in the fence, it was the right decision.

“As a team it was absolutely the right decision. As we see in other sports, sometimes substitutions are made but, from a team point of view, we were not going to risk the 33 points. Both drivers are now first and second in the drivers’ championship and we are going to do nothing to jeopardise that.”
