Mark Webber said he simply didn’t have the pace to qualify any higher for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

He told reporters after the session:

Of course, to be fifth on the grid is not very good. So it’s disappointing, of course but there’s still a long way to go tomorrow. The fat lady hasn’t sung yet. I would like to be further up but I just couldn’t get the pace. So it’s disappointing.

Asked about how aggressively he would drive at the start of the race from fifth position he said:

We need to be there at the end, of course. A lot of things can still happen in the race.

I haven’t helped things with my performance today but we’ve seen how races can change. The championship hasn’t been decided today but it would have been nice to be further up.

You could be more confident but at the end of the day we’re still in the hunt, that’s the main thing.
