Lots of pressure on Mark Webber from his team-mate of world champion Sebastian Vettel. German publication Sports Bild revealed that Red Bull was one mad at Webber’s performance at the last at Interlagos, crucial race of 2012 F1 season in Brazilian GP, which secured the German’s third consecutive title.

Red Bull’s motorsport Chief Helmut Marko says that Red Bull was unhappy with Webber’s Brazilian GP performance, where his team-mate Sebastian Vettel fights with Ferrari for word title.

Certainly, Flavio Briatore – still involved with the management of Webber’s career – said after Brazil: “The only one who helped Ferrari was Webber.”

2013 F1 is his seventh consecutive season with Red Bull Racing, but he has already been put on notice by Red Bull’s Chief advisor Helmut Marko. And also his contract expires in at the end of 2013 season.

“Mark was not optimally co-operative in Brazil,” the tough Marko confirmed.

According to Sports Bild, some drivers are being considered for a possibly drive at Red Bull, with sisters team Toro Rosso’s current drivers Daniel Ricciardo and Jean-Eric Vergne on schedule.

If neither of the two prove to be worthy for the parent team, Red Bull pulls another Germans considered. After SPORT BILD reveal Marko has a crush on Nico Hulkenberg.

“A few years ago he was on the list of candidates for our junior team, but Nico already had a main sponsor (Dekra) with which he didn’t want to separate,” Marko confirmed.
