Mark Webber Ready To Defend His Title In The Endurance Races

Mark Webber is an instance of how one needs to be a tortoise in the race to stick around for long even when the going gets tough.

He should know as he had been trying to get into Formula One for twelve years. He has been in direct conflict with Sebastian Vettel, his Red Bull contemporary. However, Webber found results for the efforts he put in by winning his first title in 2015 in the world racing championships.

This Australian driver, known for his non nonsense attitude, won in the category of the World Endurance Championship, which reflects the hard work and tenacity he has been putting in over more than a decade on the tracks. Porsche has been his long term ally. He would now be defending his title in the races this weekend. The WEC weekend starts at Silverstone circuit in Great Britain. The transition that has happened from F1 to endurance races is talked about by Mark Webber on different media channels.

He explains that driving for endurance races is akin to driving on freeways. There are people driving slow and fast and many are not sure of the lane they should stick to.

Mark Webber says Vettel better off at Ferrari

Former Formula One driver Mark Webber has said that former teammate Sebastian Vettel will be better off with Ferrari after going through a lot of struggle with Red Bull Racing last year.

The Aussie and the German were stable mates at the Austrian team between 2009 and 2013 –  a period of complete dominance for the team during which it won four consecutive Formula One Constructors’ Championships and Vettel became a fur time Formula One drivers’ champion. However, the 27 year old struggled to come to terms with the car last season and comprehensively overshadowed by Daniel Ricciardo, who replaced Webber in the team.

And speaking of his move to Ferrari this season, the Australian said that Vettel is not a silly guy and he realised he needed a fresh challenge and new motivations and he frankly believes that the decision to leave Red Bull Racing was made very early in the season, probably even before the start of it.

Mark Webber added that Red Bull Racing will definitely miss Vettel but they couldn’t have done anything else when the driver himself wanted a change of scenery, where he might think that he could get a lot more out of himself. Continue reading “Mark Webber says Vettel better off at Ferrari”
