June.09 – The Australian F1 speedy Mark Webber expecting his win soon and Webber admitted he is struggling to get the best from the new Pirelli tyres this season, which goes some way to explaining his dip in form evaluate to his team-mate Sebastian Vettel this year.
Talking from the St Lawrence River as he did a day of kayaking ahead of the Montreal weekend, Webber was unwilling to make excuses but admitted the switch from Bridgestone to Pirelli tyres has caused him some issues.
“They are very different and the drivers are very sensitive to that (change),” he told rds.ca. “It’s like a golfer or a tennis player changing his equipment. When you’re at this level and trying to gain an edge with tiny details, the small changes can make big differences. But it’s up to the drivers to adapt.”
Webber has finished on the podium twice this season and is sure his first win of 2011 is not far away.
“I hope I can continue my momentum of encouraging results and I hope to get my first win soon, because I was winning quite often last year. Vettel, who has won five of the first six races, was also asked what is making the difference for him in 2011.
“There is not one ingredient which, alone, turns the tide,” the German responded. “It is the details, the little things, that all come together to make a big difference.”
