Mark Webber has said he will be 'looking to try and break his duck' at the European Grand Prix this coming weekend and he sees 'no reason' why Red Bull Racing 'won't be able to perform well'.
Webber put himself back on the podium in Canada last time out, after having to settle for two fourth places in Barcelona and Monaco, and he will want to continue in the same vein at the Valencia Street Circuit.
His record at the 5.419 kilometre-track though is far from great. Indeed his best finish is a ninth place back in 2009, and while there have only been three races there, last year of course he crashed out in spectacular fashion, when he was launched up into the air, after running into the back of the Lotus of Heikki Kovalainen.
“Valencia hasn't been an incredible venue for me in the past but I'm looking to try and break the duck this year,” Webber confirmed ahead of the eighth round in the F1 2011 World Championship.
“I quite enjoy driving the last sector of the track, as it's got a really good combination of corners which are challenging.
“It's a circuit that's yet to provide a phenomenal F1 race, but we've seen some special ones this year, so hopefully this is an opportunity for Valencia to add its name to the list.
“There's no reason why the car shouldn't perform well there, but as we have seen in the past few races, we've certainly had our fair share of competition,” the Aussie summed-up.
