Webber pleased with incredible victory

Mark Webber pleased with his incredible victory for Monaco Grand Prix. The Australian starts from pole position and keep the position and safely finished tricky Monaco GP.

The Australian added that first phase of the race was strange and he concerned soft prime tyre degradation.

“I’m feeling incredible. It was an interesting race,” he said.

“It was reasonably straightforward at start, getting the gap and managing super-softs. Then it was matter of trying to get back into gap on track after the stops. The weather was threatening around the pit stop window but Nico went for it, went for undercut, so a few people had to react to his chess move.”

Webber’s team-mate Sebastian Vettel finished fourth position following a remarkable opening spell saw him go 45 laps on the soft compound.

“The first phase of the race was strange. It was hard to get the soft prime tyre warmed up,” he said.

“Seb had his tyres in and wasn’t wearing them so he was coming back into the picture. I didn’t want him to get the magic 21 second gap and take the lead. It’s an amazing day for the team, myself and really happy to have won here again.”

Winning team Red Bull’s principal Christian Horner felt Webber “did what he had to do” to win the race.

“It was a very intense race,” he told BBC Sport. We weren’t sure if it was going to be one or two stops. Mark was very disciplined. He stretched it out and did what he needed to do. It was a tactical race and stressful race when the rain came.”
