We’re all now effectively fighting for second place – Webber

Published

on

Sept.15 – The Australian F1 veteran Mark Webber says that, his team-mate Sebastian Vettel set his second successive F1 crown, Webber’s RB7 retried in last race at Italy, his car’s front wing jammed under following contact with Felipe Massa at curve.
“The Italian Grand Prix was one of those races that remind you how much it sucks not to finish,” Mark Webber wrote in a feature for BBC. “It’s been a while for me but it’s such a frustrating feeling – both for yourself and for the team after all the effort that has gone in. It was doubly disappointing at Monza because the car was better than it has been all year.

“It all started to go wrong in qualifying. It was pretty close between myself and Sebastian on Friday and in the first two parts of qualifying. But, in the top ten shootout, there was too much indecision from me on what we were going to do – and I had some problems with my KERS too.

“I didn’t have KERS for the whole lap and I couldn’t be sure it was behaving in the braking areas when it was recharging; that is not ideal when you’re hitting the brakes from more than 200 miles per hour. Seb won the race again and, although he is not quite Champion again yet, we’re all now effectively fighting for second place. But I wasn’t really thinking about that. I just wanted to build on the momentum of Spa – which was a very strong race for me – and challenge for the win again. That’s probably what undid me early in the race. It didn’t work out and that’s the way it goes sometimes in sport.”
