Mrak Webber “We are in uncharted waters”

Published

on

Red Bull has publicized a video with Mark Webber talk about last weekend Turkish GP and his crash with team-mate Sebastian Vettel. And faced with a torrent of criticism on the team’s website and somewhere else, team boss Christian Horner has subjected a report which rows back on the position on Sunday night and appears to place more of the responsibility on Vettel.

Mark Webber seems quite contrite in the video, but he also seems quite resolute. He talks of his own championship quest and the fact that it is going to be painful at times with two team mates fighting at the front, but makes the point that this is nobody that teams like Williams, Ferrari and McLaren haven’t dealt with in the past.

Webber has clearly discussing on the Sunday evening following the race. The nature of the video is “all for one and one for all” and he talks about the team needing to work jointly to put the controversy at the back them. As of knowledge, the quite stilted way he’s speaking is actually the way he talks to foreigner; he does it in media briefing, almost as is he feels he needs to talk more obviously when answering a non-English speaker.

“Sebastian tried a move, both of us… In the end it didn’t work out,” he says. “One of us could have won the race, but in the end we only got one third place.

“If you look back obviously after it all happens you of course want to do things differently. That;s something we learn as a team. We are in uncharted waters, both of us leading the championship. The team collectively with the drivers needs to learn how to deal with these situations better in the future.”

“We are a new team. We are still learning. In Turkey we learned in a way which was not in the best way, but McLaren and Ferrari have had these days, they know how it can be when you have some adversity. We need to be united as a team and keep going.”

It appears at an attractive time for Webber as he was into deliberations about a agreement renewal for next year. How these conditions open out over the coming weeks will obviously have a bearing on that.

The public reaction to the way Red Bull managed the crisis on Sunday has been largely negative, particularly in the English speaking world.

Horner defends Vettel for having a run at Webber, because he says that to back him off would have led to him being passed by Hamilton, but he notes that Webber held his line “Which he was entitled to do. When Sebastian was three quarters of the way past he moved to the right.”

Red Bull likes to be seen as an edgy brand and they are certainly getting that at the moment, albeit they would prefer the message to be success on the cutting edge, rather than their internal politics splashed all over the media.
