Webber: It will be all hands on deck in Spain

Mark Webber: It's tight amongst the teams, so we're mindful that we need to get everything right to get a good weekend.
Mark Webber has said it will be a case of 'all hands on deck' this weekend in Spain for Red Bull Racing.

The Milton Keynes-based outfit had a bit of low key start to the year, until bouncing back in convincing fashion in Bahrain at the end of last month, with Sebastian Vettel taking pole and the race win, while Webber was fourth for the fourth race in succession.

Now as the Spanish Grand Prix beckons, the first European race of the year, Webber will be hoping to at least get onto the podium, although he concedes the battle at the front will be 'tight'.

Indeed he added that they will need to get 'everything right' if they are to have another good weekend.

“It's the first European race of the season, so it will be all hands on deck after a successful Mugello test. It was a tricky start to the test, but it finished off well and we head to Barcelona with good miles on the car and an understanding of some new avenues,” Webber said.

“I like the Barcelona track, we do a lot of work there and it's a track that's been good to me in the past.

“I got pole there for the last two years and converted it to a win in 2010, so I'm looking for a strong weekend.

“It's tight amongst the teams, so we're mindful that we need to get everything right to get a good weekend.”

Here's hoping for the first podium finish of the year for Webber...consistency is great, but being consistently on the podium for the rest of the season would be better!
