Webber stays with RBR for 2012 season

Aug.27 – The Australian F1 veteran Mark Webber stays with Red Bull Racing for 2012 following signing a new contract only one year extension. There had been rumor that he might think changing teams or retiring after 2011 season, mostly following suggestions of favouritism towards his team-mate Sebastian Vettel during last year’s title battle and again at this season’s British GP. But Webber said remaining at RBR was an obvious choice to make.

“I want to continue racing at the top in Formula 1 so it’s a no-brainer to remain at Red Bull Racing for another year,” he told Autosport. My motivation to achieve the best results possible both for myself and the team is still very high.

“Over the past five years, we have worked hard and proved that we can design and build a competitive and championship-winning car, and I’m looking forward to putting the car and myself on the limit again each and every race weekend in 2012.”

Red Bull Racing Team boss Christian Horner added that Red Bull had no worries about retaining Webber either.

“When we sat down and started talking about 2012, it was immediately obvious that Mark and the team wanted to continue our successful relationship,” Horner added.

“This meant agreeing an extension for 2012 was very straightforward. Mark knows the team well, having been with us since 2007, and his motivation, fitness and commitment is as high as it has ever been. The pairing of Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel is a very strong one, they push each other hard and we are extremely happy the pairing will remain unchanged for a fourth season.”
