Red Bull Racing’s Mark Webber worries about his starting position for Chinese Grand Prix. Following a fuel pressure problem stop his RB9 during the Qualifying Q2.

Currently he holds 14th position on the grid, the Australian still doubt that his RB9 would not have enough fuel left to give the mandatory post-qualifying sample.

“It was a lack of fuel pressure so I couldn’t get back, so we stopped the car and qualifying was over before it started really,” Webber said following the qualifying.

“We’ll see what the rules are. I’m sure we’ll go through the process. It may be a double whammy.”

Technical regulations – Article 6.6.2 of the states: “Competitors must ensure that a one litre sample of fuel may be taken from the car at any time during the Event.

“After a practice session, if a car has not been driven back to the pits under its own power, it will be required to supply the above mentioned sample plus the amount of fuel that would have been consumed to drive back to the pits. The additional amount of fuel will be determined by the FIA.”

“I think everyone’s in a similar boat saving tyres, the option [soft] is not really the tyre for this track it’s completely wrong. This is disappointed. Q1 went very well for me and the car’s been quick all weekend.” He added.
