Fastest Laps: 1
Mark Webber once again found himself in the shadow of his Red Bull team-mate by season’s end, but the points table fails to tell the story of a better year for the Australian, who frequently swapped championship positions with Sebastian Vettel through the early part of the campaign. Four straight fourth place finishes to open the season proved a little frustrating, but Webber eventually broke through with victory in Monaco, and added a second win at Silverstone for good measure. Save for back-to-back podiums in Korea and India, however, the run-in was disappointing as his side of the garage again seemed to attract most of the bad luck that was going around at RBR. DNFs in Abu Dhabi and the USA dropped Webber back into the clutches of the McLaren drivers and he eventually ended the year sixth overall, albeit with another one-year contract extension tucked safely in his pocket.
