Mark Webber said about the way of securing his career on Red Bull Racing and he also admits that previously he talks with Ferrari and he decided to stay with current team.

“In the end, yes it was. It’s been an interesting few months, but overall the continuity and desire for me to continue at Red Bull Racing was very strong.

“My main focus is on this year’s Championship, which is very important. In addition it’s an amazing bunch of guys and girls at Red Bull Racing and I really, really like working with them. That has a huge effect on me and how I perform in the car and it helped me in my decision.”

“There were discussions with Ferrari, but my decision was to stay here.”

Ferrari hints they are satisfied with Felipe Massa current form and the team boss Stefano Domenicali says no rush to talks about Fernando Alonso’s future team-mate.

“I am very pleased to have seen that Felipe was very quick, fighting hard and consistently throughout the weekend,” di Montezemolo told the Ferrari website. “It was very important for him and for us, because it is partly due to the points he scored that we have moved up to second in the constructors’ classification.”

“I have said all the time that we are in no rush,” Domenicali said before confirmation news of Webber’s deal with Red Bull Racing for 2013.

“I am happy to see that Felipe was fourth [at Silverstone]. He was very unlucky in Valencia, so I think it [his struggle] is all over.

“I am happy to see after a very difficult start that he is in this shape and I really hope he can keep it up to the end.” Domenicali added.
