Webber: We can perform anywhere

Mark Webber predicts a strong run through the second half of the F1 season for Red Bull Racing
Mark Webber says he is confident that Red Bull Racing will continue to be strong through the remainder of the F1 season, with the championship leader confident that the RB6 will remain the car to beat.

The Australian moved into the championship lead with victory in Hungary while third place for team-mate Sebastian Vettel in the same race allowed Red Bull to head the constructors' championship.

Some have questioned whether or not Red Bull will be able to maintain its advantage following the summer break but Webber insisted that he was confident of adding to his four wins already this season and that the team would be strong on each of the circuits still to come.

“We've shown this year that the car is performing on all tracks so we hope we don't have any weak circuits,” he told Red Bull's official website. “Singapore should be good, Suzuka, Brazil and Abu Dhabi. We're a little bit worried about how the long straights might go at some of the other venues, at Monza maybe. But the car is very, very strong at most tracks so we're ready to take on anyone at any venue.

“It would be nice to win Spa, Suzuka and a few other victories, and along with that hopefully comes something special. I have a few of my goals already in the pocket this year, which is sensational , but we have some great races coming up in the future - some real signature events which would be great to win.”

Webber added however that he wasn't taking anything for granted, with the team needing to work hard to be more consistent.

“At some tracks we're not quite there or I'm not quite there,” he admitted. “We've had some small hiccups but you need perfect weekends to win at this level. Every race gives 25 points and we need to perform everywhere.

“If we can do that you never know what could happen at the end of the year.”
