F1 » Webber 'very happy' with P3, Lewis incident 'not desirable'

Mark Webber: I got caught up behind one the Virgin cars, he was doing his best, but Lewis got a good run on me and unfortunately we made contact. It's obviously not desirable, as it was a key part of the race for me to maintain my position.

Taking into account the state of Webbers front wheel after the race (where the tye was almost off) I think he did a fantastic job of staying in front of Button.

@ Mike - Nothing thuggish at all. Just a good driver who holds his line, which he's entitled to do.

He deserves the WDC if he gets it.

He "gets away with it" because he's done nothing wrong. The tv commentators (some of whom have competed in F1) and the track stewards have come to the same conclusion. Of course Mike the unregistered is entitled to her view but what it's based on I'm not sure.

Webber played it smart, he put his car in a place where he had a right to say he had the corner, hamilton couldn't see him, it's a racing incident.

Fair plays to Lewis for not whinging about it (casey stoner style) in his interview afterwards. His boss should take some tips in dealing with the media from him.

To Mark you have not been watching F1 for to long i guess. I think the Karma train has finally in Webbers Favour after all these years where the luck has been against him.

I second that, Webber has had enough share of bad luck in his time in F1. Good to see him dishing it for once.

P.S. Hamilton fans should prepare for more mistakes, Lewis's run of luck has come to an end this year...

For all of those questioning this incident especially on viewing the Hamilton in car shot, you're ignoring the fact that Lewis would have a clear view in his mirror of what was happening and HE elected to hold his line too, Webber didn't "outbrake" himself as some suggested and as most knowledgable observers have concluded it's a racing incident. Get over it!
