Webber can’t maintain form – Marko

Red Bull motorsport advisor Helmut Marko says that their speedy Mark Webber can’t maintain form and also he under pressure F1 championship fight.

Helmut Marko said throughout in an interview in Red Bulletin magazine, Webber is good enough to win a few races a year, but struggles to get a champion’s consistency.

“It seems to me that Webber has on average two races per year where he is unbeatable, but he can’t maintain this form throughout the year. As soon as his prospects start to look good in the World Championship, he has a little trouble with the pressure that this creates.” Marko said

“In comparison with Seb [Vettel’s] rising form, it seems to me that Mark’s form somehow flattens out. Then, if some technical mishap occurs, like with the alternator for example, he falls relatively easily into a downward spiral.

“No driver remains unaffected by this, because the tension is palpable. In 2010, it was particularly extreme. Webber headed into the final race with better chances than Vettel, and he probably carried the disappointment of his defeat into the 2011 season, which is so easy to understand.”

“Something that I think is also very important is that for much of his career, Mark was never in a top team, but he was always regarded as a high flyer if he only could get into the right team,” then Red Bull puts him in a car – a possible winner – and suddenly along comes this young kid and he snatches the booty from under Mark’s nose.” Marko added.

“Psychologically it’s not easy, of course; this would gnaw away at anyone’s confidence. It’s more than understandable.”
