Webber driving for the win in Abu Dhabi

"We've got a little bit of a fire going which we need to tidy up and the quality of the team is exceptional, we know what we need to improve on, to help our championships along," he said. "Obviously Seb's still involved in the drivers' [title battle], and the constructors' is still important to us."

With Vettel out of the picture at least for the first stage of the race, the team will be relying on Weber to bring home as many constructors' championship points as he can - giving him the green light to go for a win.

But Vettel's problems in qualifying, and his own technical gremlins on Webber, are also a concern for the team and for Webber if it means that reliability issues are set to ruin their Abu Dhabi campaign.

"Yeah, we realised we've got to work on our reliability," he agreed. "We've had a few issues of late and that's something the group is on. There's nothing Sebastian and I can do about it. It's not our job, it's their job and they know they've got to improve."

Now that vettel is way back down and Alonso is ahead of him. So RBR will ensure Webber stays ahead of Alonso. This means that Webber will probably have the best car he must have had all over the season. Dont expect malfunctions in KERS/DRS/brakes.... Nothing will go wrong today. Things go wrong for Webber only when Vettel is close to him(read just behind him in either grid position or racing position).
