F1 » Webber loses out in Spanish GP 'chess game'


Mark Webber: At the end of the race I finished 40 seconds behind Lewis and Seb. It was an interesting day today and shows how fine the margins are. We were frustrated by Fernando who seemed to pit every time I did! At certain stages I was quick and at others I wasn't – that's the way it was today.

It's a pity he was so focussed on defending himself from Vettel which then let him get swamped, otherwise it could have been a red bull 1-2, bit dissappointing really.

He was in front of Vettel two-thirds of the way done the straight from the start and looked to have the lead covered until Alonso used all his KERS to surprise both Red Bull drivers. By the time Webber realised and tried to defend, it was too late and he got shuffled back to 3rd. No one could get past Alonso on track (Vettel and Hamilton did it in the pits) and that was Webber's race over. By the time he finally jumped Alonso, Button was already 10 seconds ahead and 4th was the best he could do. A stuff-up at the start, then poor strategy thereafter. A very ordinary race for Webber.
