Webber wants words with Vettel

Mark Webber says he will be have ‘a chat’ with team-mate Sebastian Vettel following their coming together today during the Turkish GP.

Webber, who had taken pole, had led from the off in his RB6 and looked on course to take his third win in a row, despite being unable to pull away from first Lewis Hamilton and then after the pit stops, Vettel.

However, in the final third of the race, Webber and Vettel made contact and that cost Christian Horner’s team a likely 1-2.

“Sebastian had a bit of a top speed advantage, he went down the inside and we were side by side. I was surprised when he came right suddenly, as I was holding my racing line. It happened very, very fast and it’s a shame for the team,” said Webber, who took a consolation third place.

“We’ve got great character in our team and two fast drivers at the front – we’re not dicing for 15th and 16th, we’re going for victories, so there’s clearly a lot at stake. I’ll have a chat with Sebastian about it. We might have a difference of opinion, but we’ll be adults about it and press on.”
