If he wants to save some bucks he could move to the Vettels to live in Sebs old childrens room for the time he is working for Porsche. Vettel lives in a Villa in Switzerland now and i am sure he is only too willing to help out his poor old pal from the convict colony.

IF Webber decides to call it a day I would understand, he has been outclassed by Vettel but I would think most drivers of this generation would also be outclassed having Vettel as a team mate.
Mark has been a great addition to F1, an honest, tough competitor and one of the few F1 drivers who is bright enough to listen to without having to cringe.
I wish him well for the future, be it in F1 or elsewhere.

True, Ferrari did deny they held talks, but only after Webber signed again with RB, saying, "It's been an interesting few months, but overall the continuity and desire for me to continue at Red Bull Racing was very strong." making it seem like he turned Ferrari down. True? Perhaps, but his statement at the time that RB was his main focus suggests to me that he will retire before switching teams this late in his career. But, stranger things have happened. Somehow I still think the Raikkonen rumours might have some substance.

Webber was a good driver. Perhaps on a par with the likes of a Coulthard, Rubens, Berger or Massa.

A race winner on a good day but never quite had that little something special that could elevate him to the level of World Champion.

In that respect he is faced with the same choice as the other drivers I mentioned. Either be the team leader in a mid field team or play second fiddle in a top team where he would at least have the chance of some wins.

It is a dilemma for sure. Can your ego take it? Or can you motivate yourself to start races where you know you will be lucky to even score a point.

@ Richard - you are more than too "funny", please stop.

@ Angelina - Any RedBull team will keep ALL trophies won by any driver in any RedBull car. Such is F1 these days. Being a team sport they are the ones who win either championships.

I will be glad to see Webber bid goodbye to RedBull/Formula1 for pastures green. Sad seeing the way things are going behind the scene, maybe I too should head elsewhere...
