How can LH possibly comment on Webbers' future plans? I would not like to speculate on my colleagues future plans and we work together 5 days a week, never mind commenting on a fellow F1 driver, where they only get together on a lorry for one lap.

On the article - I will certainly not miss MW.

Would sound a lot more credible if it came from Mark Webber's mouth or is this just another way of saying The Red Bull team have produced a car which is so much faster than the rest of the field? judging by their performance at Bahrain it has awesome potential if they can overcome reliabilty issues

Richard, why do you (and others) presume RBR will automatically sign Kimi to replace Webber? I don't believe Kimi has said that he wants to come back to F1, he just said 'let's wait and see...' Why would he want to return to the shambles that is F1 at the moment? He looked bored to tears last season, and he was in a Ferrari! I'm sure that rallying will put the smile back on his face, and the fire in his belly. Can't see him quitting the WRC after just one year - he is too good a driver. He will just get better at rallying, he is a Finn - it's in his blood.

@ Richard.

Lewis did make that statement and is quoted correctly.

Mark has said himself he is 33 however still enthused.

He has hinted that this may be his last year in the top flight however he wishes to leave the sport on his own terms, not others. He was featured on a interview to us on Sunday Night and clearly stated he will know when the "use by date" is up. He has a season to assess his ability and whether the enhusiasm will remain. Otherwise he will retire and manage his pub.
Red Bull have allready said they would not be approaching Kimi for F1 unless a lot changes.

I have left a message for you in the topic regarding Button where we chatted previously..

Interesting use of the word "ostensibly" in the article.

Webber has to make a very significant mark this year, the second year running that it appears he has the best car out there.

Many drivers can win races from the front, on the right day, but what differentiates the Champions from the Also Rans is the ability to deliver every week, regardless. This is where Webber has looked very shaky and unconvincing, to a lot of people.
