Webber is a very nice man but for the sake of F1 entertainment we need to have the best team in F1 to have a proper top driver to take on Vettel and with Lewis and Alonso under a contract it leaves Kimi as the only other top driver who wont be under a contract come the end of this season.

Good for Mark - I wish him well - but the F1 paddock will be the worse for his departure - one of the straight and honest guys.

And going into a class, if anything, more technically advanced than F1.

Well done mate.

And read Andrew Benson's appreciation of Webber on the BBC site - excellent piece.

It's not a surprise, but it does make me sad to see. F1 will be a lot less interesting without Webber in it, to me. Red Bull's constructors opposition has to be happy to see it, though. I'm sure Webber will do well with Porsche in the Endurance Championship and I'm hoping he writes a "tell all" about his time with Red Bull's F1 program.

"He hasn't won anything"

Ummm... except 9 Formula 1 GP's. Is this a little too hard for you to understand, or do I need to draw you a picture.

Never mind, you're clearly a *****, so I won't waste my time.

@richard

Are you catching Carmen's disease? Please point out exactly where I said Webber was number 1 at Red Bull or better than Vettel?

I simply corrected the, quite obviously not too bright Carmen, when it stated that Webber was a loser, not a contender and never was.

Knowing that you do actually watch F1 and are a fan, I'm sure you can agree that looney tunes Carmen is in fact wrong.

@Bobkp Obviously you have a thing for Webber. He is done in F1 and never accomplished anything. He is another Ruebens, and Felipe. He is no Button, Vettel, Kimi, Schumacher, Hamilton, or Alonso. He has done nothing in his 100 years of racing. He has and deserves no respect. Vettel did more than him during his first year than he did in all of his.

"He has and deserves no respect"

Utter b*ll**** on both counts, he has respect from racing fans and he deserves it. Always admired his honesty. Not a massive Webber fan and I don't support a specific driver but he'll be missed. He deserves respect.
