    Impressive work, must have taken some doing. Just a few other things from 2011;
    Spain Webber KERS failure
    Canada Webber Intermittent KERS Steering Wheel replaced during race.
    Japan Webber Team Orders to back off.
    Abu Dhabi Webber lost lap time due to debris from Vettel’s tyre damage stuck in car. Long pit stop 9sec+.

    Sounded more like Red Bull said… I mean allegedly said, they weren’t talking about Sainz Jr… although why wouldn’t they?

    Mark has multiple instances of “Kini” on his shirt – coincidence I hope so (for Ricciardo’s sake)!

    Why’s that?

    Good fun segment, enjoyed that banter.
    And the “new tarmac”? It just sounded like Webber’s retort to Clarkson’s dig at him taking such a wide line.

    Always like to take the opponent into consideration so Webber’s pass on Raikkonen is more impressive than going round a less experienced driver.

    We stayed at the Yas Island Rotana, a walk away from the track but I think all of the hotel’s nearby get booked up very quickly.

    Don’t know the specifics of diet but certainly all of the taller drivers must watch their food intake to minimize the weight advantage that the shorter drivers have.
    I recall reading Webber say he hasn’t eaten a packet of crisps in over 10 years and that he has been probably 15kg below his natural body weight since being in F1.
    Maybe next year he’ll be able to have the odd pizza and ice cream binge!

    Good to see Conor back tweeting that he was ok, if confused what happened;
    “Pretty devastated. Never once felt uncomfortable in this car. Rear felt like it just collapsed all of a sudden. Can’t believe it…”

    And that ice cream solves everything.

    If they allow fans onto the track after the race again then that’s your one chance to get on the start/finish line. One suggestion, take a big umbrella; no one wants to say “I do” (hopefully!) soaking wet.
    And good luck!

    If you want a direct comment from Webber he has confirmed he’s staying with RBR until the end of the season and that he will go back to Le Mans series with Porsche but not when specifically.
    I think that is his next step and it could well be in 2014 for 5 years… but I doubt this is how and when the announcement was meant to happen.
    So for now it’s gossip but with good pedigree.

    @Kingshark True. In fact Webber “has been retiring” every year since the end of 2008.

    Webber to Porsche Le Mans is not new… he even said it himself back in January 2012 although he didn’t specify when.

    Don’t hold your breath, can’t see it ever happening.

    I was only stating facts,not why those facts happened.
    Interesting that earlier you quoted Christian Horner; “Mark Webber was not on ‘reduced engine power’.”
    Now you say Webber was on reduced power and more so than Vettel… this is contrary to all the previous arguments that Webber’s defence was a fair fight. Clearly it wasn’t, that’s all I’m stating here.

    Vettel was only as close to Webber as he was because RBR gave him the undercut at the final stops… I assumed it was to ensure his second place was safe from Hamilton. Vettel took advantage of that gift and potentially ruined the team’s race.
    And RBR have confirmed Webber’s engine was turned down.

    Maybe, PM but the one person at RBR who has supported Webber is Mateschitz himself. Loyalty repaid with loyalty.
