F1 » Horner: 'Very, very likely' Webber will remain with Red Bull


Christian Horner reiterates that it is 'very, very likely' that Mark Webber will still be with Red Bull Racing in F1 2012. And Lewis Hamilton? "I really don't think blue is his colour..."

Mark is an experienced hand at this game. He knows Newey's cars are always fighting for race wins and titles on regular basis. He knows at Ferrari, It would be rocky as FA is #1 there and they have no problems using team orders. Also with their team changes up it'll be a few seasons until they are back to winning form, and MW isn't getting any younger. As for Lotus Renault GP, they still have some teething problems. Also when RK comes back, is VP giving way?

MW would do best to stay where he is. He knows the team well, and he knows he has a title winning car under him. Any other big name driver to come in will probably rock the boat more than the owners wish.

This is a total no brainer, Mark is a really strong driver and clearly wants to stay at Red Bull. Where else would he go at this stage of his career, Ferrari, I don't think so, Alonso is king there and their are team orders, McClaren, why, they have not produced a top car for several years and I don't think Hamilton or Button are going anywhere, Renault, not really there yet, the rest are all a huge step down. His only problem appears to be Helmet Marko who for some reason is not a fan, but he is only an advisor and advisors can be ignored, besides if Marko is anywhere near as bad in this roll as he was as a GP driver at BRM he is not worth the money they pay him.

oldtimer. i agree with most of what you say, but your last comment about marko is unwarranted. he was a rising star in f1 and if he had not lost an eye whilst racing, he would more than likely have had a good career. dont forget, at the time he drove, brm had lost the plot!

Webber would be stupid to leave Red Bull. This is the best car he has had and given the contract situations between drivers and the other top teams, I think it is the best car he will have in his F1 career.

What I can see happening is Ricciardo ending up in a Torro Rosso and then if he performs well in a Red Bull for 2013. Probably ties in nicely with Webber retiring.
