Red Bull Racing's Mark Weber has said he has only one target in mind for the British Grand Prix and that is to win.

Webber moved up to second in the 2012 F1 drivers' championship following his fifth fourth place finish of the year in Valencia, but with Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso 20 points ahead, he ideally needs to repeat at Silverstone what he did in Monaco, when he took the victory and the maximum 25-point haul.

"I'm really looking forward to the British Grand Prix and racing in front of a sell-out crowd that's passionate about F1," Webber said ahead of the ninth round in the championship.

"Many of them will be there to cheer on the Brits, so there's some irony in the fact that Silverstone is actually the local track for both the Aussie F1 drivers on the grid; Daniel Ricciardo and I are based in Buckinghamshire!

"It's a great time of the year for British sport, with Wimbledon on at present and the Olympic Games just around the corner.

"I'm sure the British GP won't disappoint; we're going to Silverstone with one goal in mind and that's to win!"
