Webber fights back to front row

Mark Webber helps Red Bull to secure a 1-2 on the grid in Valencia
Mark Webber was pleased to battle back in Q3 to secure a place on the front row of the grid for the European Grand Prix.

The Australian had made his way into the final stage of qualifying in Valencia only for a poor first lap in the top ten shootout to leave him staring at a place on the third row of the grid.

However, Webber was able to fight back with his second lap of Q3 as he became the only driver to improve on his position on his second run as he moved up to second place to help Red Bull lock out the front row of the grid.

“That was a pretty good lap,” he said. “There are so many corners here that you'd like to put them all together perfectly from all of your runs, but that's not the case and you have to try and put them together when it counts. I didn't have the smoothest build up in qualifying, so the guys did a good job to recover with me.

“I knew there was more to come on the last lap, I just had to put it all together. Still, it wasn't easy, but it was a good lap and it was good to go a bit faster in the last sector. Seb was strong in the first two, but in the end it is a great day for the team off the back of all the talk. Of course, there are no points today, so we're looking forward to tomorrow's race and we'll go from there.”
