Even if this story has any credulity Webber is his own man and will no doubt make the right decision at the right time. The Porsche option if it exists would make much more sense than tooling around in a Williams or Sauber near the back of the field. Remember he is a race winner in F1 and is unlikely to go for anything less than the best race winning option.

@elijah "warped views"? but Roy and HG did some very funny stuff on Webber :)

I admit that I have never been a Webber because of his often ham-fisted overtaking attempts that have ruined peoples races. He is an average driver at best but can have the odd good race. It is time he retired and let a young guy have a go in the RBR team.

Basically Redbull won't be renewing this useless destructive force's contract. As I've said before Webber has been threatening all sorts over the last few years but at the end as long as Redbull are willing to keep him he won't be going anywhere its all just empty postering and it looks as if though Horner and co have had enough as this hypocritical 2nd rate driver. Good riddens and bring in Kimi please at least RBR would have a no nonsense driver and also a better driver at that, he helped Felipe as much as he could in 2008 unlike Webber who would rather take Vettel out all in the name of jealousy, Mark couldn't beat Vettel when Seb was a teenager, 20's or 30's he is an inferior driver enjoy Mark being crushed by Seb 5 years on the trot.

If true, this wreaks of the same despicable attention seeking that Hamilton has been accused of in recent years! Things aren't going your way? Throw a fit to the press and try to garner public sympathy. The reality of it is that he has been a step or more behind Vettel from day one and nothing is going to change that. He has complained incessantly to the press about his treatment as a number two driver at Red Bull. He would be the number two driver wherever he went, unless it were to Force India, Marussia or perhaps even Sauber. He is quite simply not strong enough to be a #1 driver at a a contending team. He may never have been. I am not saying that he is not talented, I am saying that he is emotional, and that his emotions tend to get the better of him more often than not. His countryman Casey Stoner has faced much criticism (not that he cares) this past year for walking away from MotoGP the way he did. I suspect Mark would face a similar onslaught.

Fare thee well, life gets no ea
