Webber: KERS failure cost Indian GP second place

Webber slowing down in the Indian GP strait line during the second stint in the race, the Australian says after the race, KERS failure cost his second place on the podium.

Mark Webber start from second on the grid successfully he hold the place before the KERS problem, but Alonso attacked him in second half of the race, following he too struggled with strait-line speed the final few laps Hamilton challenged with him.

Finally the Australian done third place on the podium. Also Webber now fourth on the drivers’ championship two points ahead of McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton.

“I enjoyed the fight today,” said Webber.

“I think it was around lap 19-20, maybe a bit earlier.

“We needed to screw around with brake balance, and just manage as best we could [to not] lose rhythm and tempo. We needed to keep the focus, but it is so demoralising on that straight with no KERS – it is not really a battle.”

“I managed to break DRS and get away from Fernando, [when the] KERS there or thereabouts. Then the blue flags did nothing for backmarkers, the guys don’t know how much they kill us in the corners.

“When I had no KERS Fernando came past – they have good top gear – and that was it. I pushed as strong as possible to get to the end of the race, but I was lucky Lewis made a mistake on lap 57.

“That was important because he was starting to get a bit of momentum. I was keen to keep him out of DRS as much as possible. But I’m happy with how I drove and we’ll come back for Abu Dhabi.”
