Korean GP - Thursday press conference - Pt.2

Not really. I think that as a competitor you want it to be more consistent and obviously achieving nice results. I've enjoyed the racing, to be honest, that's been quite good, but ultimately we like to have the taste of success and that's what we strive for each weekend so I prefer that than the enjoyment of the racing, I suppose. That's the balance we try to strike, but obviously we work hard as a team. We would like to make it more boring if we can, but we've got some tough opposition so that's the name of the game and let's see how the season finishes off.

Q: (Alan Baldwin - Reuters)
I'd like to ask anybody who would like to answer it really, but Sauber put out a press release earlier on this morning announcing that Monisha (Kaltenborn) was going to be taking over from Peter (Sauber) as team principal, which will make her the first woman team principal. I know we've got used to seeing Monisha around and being chief executive, but it is quite a breakthrough. Maybe you could comment on this?

Mark Webber:
Yeah, I think it's great. Why not? There's absolutely no reason why... we have very successful businesswomen around the world so there's absolutely no reason why she cannot run a successful racing team. Some of the qualities that females have in terms of making decisions faster than a room full of men might be a positive thing. I look forward to seeing how she goes.

Sebastian Vettel:
I don't think her job really changes; I think she was already doing what she's doing now. Obviously I still know some of the guys at Sauber from a couple of years ago, but I think that at this stage they would probably be happier to put out a press release saying that they've found a lot of cash for next year.
