Webber: Could be worse, but could be better

Mark Webber: I knew the front row was going to be very competitive today, but I'm disappointed to be off the second row. I don't think I could have done a lap to get on the front row; so it could be worse, but it could be better

F1 2010 championship leader Mark Webber was disappointed following qualifying for the Singapore Grand Prix.

Webber finished the top-ten shoot-out fifth, below all four of his main championship rivals - and he admitted he has had trouble getting to grips with the 5.073 kilometre street circuit, which winds its way round the cities Marina Bay.

“I knew the front row was going to be very competitive today, but I'm disappointed to be off the second row,” said the Aussie.

“I don't think I could have done a lap to get on the front row; so it could be worse, but it could be better.

“We will keep hanging in there as it's a long race tomorrow and we'll see how it goes. I was having trouble getting the rhythm around here; there are a few places where I know I lost time on most of my laps because I wasn't fast enough.

“Ferrari did a good job and Sebastian [Vettel – my team-mate] has been fast all weekend. Fernando [Alonso] got the pole and fair play to him. Let's see what we can do from there tomorrow.”

not a good result for webber, but again to his credit, he comes to terms with the events of the day, and is looking to the race tommorow, not a daydreamy 'if i can get of the line . . .' jenson button babble
