Korean GP – Webber: Race start was not sensational

The Pole sitter Mark Webber once again made a poor start at Korean Grand Prix Race. His team-mate Sebastian Vettel grabbed the top place in opening lap of the race, following during the race Webber drive strongly and cleanly and to finish second on the podium ahead of Fernando Alonso.

Also Webber added that he is disappointed but still happy to get a good result, the Turn 1 is not good for passing and he said Red Bull won’t take risk in the first corner’ and also both Red Bull drivers was struggled with their tyre in final session of the race.

“The start wasn’t sensational, I’ll have to look in to it but the initial getaway wasn’t too great,” Webber said.

“It’s not the best corner to lead off so I thought ‘OK we won’t risk too much in the first corner’ and then I got a good slipstream off Sebastian but it was just neck-and-neck for us along the back straight. Then after that I just tried to hang in the best I could.”

“Then it was just about tyres really; looking after the front right at the end of each stint. It was difficult to keep the front right alive, so the first two stints were quite tricky for me and then the last stint I was much happier with the balance but it was all too late then.”

“Good drive for Seb, a great day for the team, the guys did a great job. Of course I’m disappointed but I’m happy to get a good result on the other side as well.”
