God I wish Webber would stop moaning. He’s the one who’s had the perfect car all year that’s never broken down. He’s just making excuses for when Alonso wins the title.
If he leaves Red Bull, Buemi could end up being number 0 too if he wins. That’d be sweeeeet!
(Also Steph Legard “quoted” that even though it wasn’t a direct quote, he didn’t say exactly what he wrote. Then again it is Legard. Don’t expect him to get anything right. Especially as he’s in love with Webber and Button.)
Agree with Superted. Webber has no one other than himself to blame if he doesn’t win the title this year. If his teammate had the same reliability on his RB6, he would have comfortably won the title by now. Prior to the 2009 season, I always wondered if Webber was ever handed a top drive, would he be able to win a WDC. This year he couldn’t have asked for a more dominant and reliable car, and I guess it answers my question to whether he is WDC material.
To be fair, if you read his comment, he’s not exactly making up any excuses for losing the title or not winning races. He’s just resonating what Christian Horner himself said a few weeks ago: that Red Bull is ready to build the team around Vettel, who was many years left in Formula One. Webber, on the other hand, is on his way out.
I’m sure that if Webber loses the world championship, he will be the first one to blame himself.
What nik says. If you read the whole thing, it gives another impression. He’s not saying: “boy, i should be the Number one”. He’s just saying he feels the team is more behind Vettel in terms of emotional support, which is true, really.
