Webber: Staying in F1 wasn’t a consideration

“I accept that motor racing is dangerous but Le Mans is one of the most famous circuits in the world and to be honest, I still see it as unfinished business and I want to do well there,” he said. “Le Mans can be cruel as we've just seen, but it's incredibly rewarding and that's part of the allure.

“I realise F1 is seen as the absolute pinnacle of motorsport and I've worked with some incredible people, in particular Adrian Newey. I've driven in some of the toughest and most challenging conditions and circuits, and against some incredible drivers, which I'll continue to do until the end of the year.

“Will I miss some of this? Yes, of course, but time doesn't stand still for anyone and it's time to move on to my next challenge.”

Mark Webber will be sorely missed. Great speed, superb racecraft, in fact one of about six drivers who know how to battle wheel to wheel at 200mph. Vettel is not one of those six... yet. Guess people on here, by the uninformed opinionated drivel usually put forth, prefer the stupid antics of Perez and such. You will never see Perez or the other pretenders make a proper move on Alonso through eau rouge or the like, as Webber has done. Barging people into a penalty situation is not overtaking. Shame he couldn't swap and go to Lotus!!!

pcxmac... As usual you seem to gave a film grasp of understanding . Next seasons changes to the spec of the car are not conducive to wonderful, powerful, raw engines. The pinnacle of technology yes.... the pinnacle of racing... I think not... Every season seems to loose something, sacrificing that special element of ability, and sheer skill driving at being talented enough to drive F1 car for technology.... The spectacle that is F1 is fading into history....
