Webber: This year is going to be unpredictable

Mark Webber: All things we've seen so far are indicating it is going to be pretty unpredictable and for the neutral that's a good thing.

Mark Webber has predicted that all the grand's prix this season could be 'pretty interesting'.

In addition to the arrival of Pirelli, as the sole tyre supplier, drivers and teams will also have to cope with the returns of KERS – Kinetic Energy Recovery Systems – as well as a moveable rear wing designed to aid overtaking.

Webber believes this should help spice up proceedings: "I think every grand prix this year has a chance to be pretty interesting," the Aussie told Reuters. "We don't know quite yet how the races are going to unfold with strategy and how the rear wing's going to work and KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System) and that sort of stuff.

"When you get down to the nitty-gritty of actually what's going to happen on Sunday afternoon and how exciting it's going to be, we don't quite know yet.

"But all things we've seen so far are indicating it is going to be pretty unpredictable and for the neutral that's a good thing."

Meanwhile, Webber, who fractured his shoulder at the end of last year in a mountain bike accident, added he is in tip-top shape for F1 2011: "It's all good. I've been doing lots of (bike) riding, being out on the bike training and doing stuff.

"I'm in pretty good nick actually, not bad for an old boy, so ready to go again," added the Red Bull man.

billyz, it's probably because Webber is always willing to give a comment when asked by reporters. I'm sure crash.net could fill up their news with drivers trying their best to avoid committing to an answer if you want, but it sure would be boring. For example: What do you think of this years potential? "I'm sure all drivers will be trying their best and the best teams will rise to the top." Too many stories like that and we'll all be switching off. At least Webber will give his opinion. All we need now is for other drivers to do the same.
