Webber expects mixed up race

Mark Webber: We know there's going to be some weather coming in, which will mix things up a bit. That's very good for the people at home watching on TV, but it means a few grey hairs for us sitting in the cockpit.

Red Bull Racing's Mark Webber is anticipating a few shocks in the final race of the F1 2011 season.

The Brazilian Grand Prix has a history of topsy-turvy rain affected races and the 2011 edition could well be a similar tale.

Indeed the widespread view in the paddock is that precipitation is likely at some point during Sunday's race at the Interlagos circuit, and the Aussie knows only to well how rain can shake up the established order, as it aided his own win in Sao Paulo in 2009, when his team-mate Sebastian Vettel and world champion elect Jenson Button, then of Brawn GP, were caught out early on in qualifying.

“It was a good session today and we know there's going to be some weather coming in, which will mix things up a bit. That's very good for the people at home watching on TV, but it means a few grey hairs for us sitting in the cockpit,” he said.

Webber qualified second to Vettel today, but could be encouraged by the gap, which was less than two tenths of a second to the double F1 world champion.

“Qualifying was a good effort today from the whole team. It was very close with Sebastian, he did a great lap again, but there wasn't much between us,” Webber continued.

“I'm looking forward to the race now, it's a good challenge here and it would be great to finish the season with a good result,” he concluded.

Been watching that Webber guy for a couple races now. Last race he was quick, really quick. Dumb tire rule he missed the podium. For some reason I think he may just upset the cart. Cool !! Jose
