Mark Webber says after the race, he is still nerves about Red Bull’s reliability problems. The Australian forced out from the inaugural United Stated Grand Prix following failure of the Gear Box and KERS.
His team-mate Sebastian Vettel grabbed Pole position and set second on the podium, and extends his drivers title points. The Australian start from the third on the grid and he made a clean start, but unfortunately again he forced to retire from the race. Following the Vettel’s victory Red Bull locked their third constructors’ championship in a row.
“In the end, it was the alternator again,” Webber explained following the race.
“That meant we lost the batteries, the KERS, our gearbox synchronization and so on. I knew I was in trouble.
“It’s disappointing when you lose such a good result, both for myself and the team, and there are now more nerves about our reliability, for sure.”
“A third Constructors’ for the team is an incredible achievement. Three years in a row is something that I think all of us would never have envisaged when we first started to be successful, so the results that we’ve had over the years is really astonishing.” The Australian added.
“This Championship was probably the toughest one so far, for lots of different reasons and – it’s a cliché – but it’s been a real team effort.”
