Mark Webber has urged his Red Bull team to work on improving its race pace in order to avoid a repeat of the German Grand Prix, where the team failed to win for only the fourth time this season.
Webber secured pole position for the second successive race at the Nurburgring but, as was the case at Silverstone, was unable to convert pole into victory as he finished the race in third.
That means Webber has now failed to convert his last five pole positions into victory and he admits that Red Bull needs to improve its race day pace, which has failed to match its one-lap qualifying speed despite the six wins secured by team-mate Sebastian Vettel this year.
"I don't think I could have done much more on Sunday,” he told Sporting Life. “I drove to the limit of the car. Of course, I was disappointed not to win, but we know we have to improve the car on Sundays.
"It's an area that has been brewing the last few races, and it is something we need to try to address soon."
In total this season, Webber has only bettered his qualifying position twice in the ten races run so far and has finished lower than he started on seven occasions.
