Commodore, yes, I understood what you were saying (the other day) and I believe that was my response to you.
The question is, will some people from on these pages learn something/anything from all this regarding how the media operates and is used?.

Judging by the first 4 races neither Vergne nor Ricciardo is ready to step into that RBR yet and Webber is doing reasonably well so far so it makes a lot of sense for RBR to retain Webber for another year.

I just wonder if Webber wouldn't/shouldn't want to move to a different team (particularly Ferrari) right about now. In the past when he could partner up with FA at Renault he refused to do so, probably out of fear that he'd be 2nd fiddle and it would be a carreer ender, but at this point if you're going to be a nr2 driver, why not do that with the most iconic team in F1.

It's in Red Bulls best interest to keep Webber with the team. Not so much because he seems to be able to handle the car better than his team-mate when things aren't going so well, but because of the knowledge he could take with him to Red Bull's competition. Besides, another year for the TR drivers to sort themselves out will do them good.

I agree Dee - Common sense prevailing - MW and RBR appear to suit each other very well, car and team are good and Mark is still quick, consistent and appears more calm than Seb. I can see why Ferrari would go for him in the short term but for MW it can't make much sense - apart from the obvious kicks of driving for Ferrari of course.

With the tightest regs in history of F1 there is no reason to leave any of the top 5 teams. All teams will be in the hunt year after year. FIA will have it no other way. Only reason for him to leave is if he wants to drive for Ferrari, so he can say he was a Ferrari driver.

commodore. i just reread your original comment, and you clearly stated that webber had signed an "intent" contract. i did not believ that and webber stated that he had not. i think that you are rowing back a bit on your original assertion?
