“Still too much tyre-saving” for Webber

2013 Singapore Grand PrixPosted on | Author Keith Collantine

Mark Webber, Red Bull, Singapore, 2013Mark Webber believes F1 races are still excessively dominated by having to manage tyre wear.

Webber said the Singapore race was “quite good” but believes there was “still too much tyre-saving going on”.

“But that’s the way it is,” he added. “I think towards the end you could give it a go but a bit of a novelty.”

Webber has repeatedly criticised the policy of using tyres that degrade rapidly to produce more unpredictable races in F1.

He leaves Singapore point-less after his car developed a fault at the end of the race while he was running in fourth place. “I didn’t get to the end which was a shame, did everything I could.”

“I’m happy with how I drove,” he added. “That’s the way it goes.”
