Mark Webber expecting equal status with Sebastian Vettel
Friday 17 December 2010
Red Bull driver Mark Webber says he is confident he will receive equal treatment from the team next season despite teammate Sebastian Vettel having won the 2010 Formula One drivers' title.
The re-legalisation of team orders and Vettel's world title had led to speculation that Webber will be forced into a supporting role next season but said today that "the team know the best was to defend our championship is to put both feet forward."
Webber had every intention of taking on Vettel in 2011, saying "I will need to beat everyone and one of those drivers is going to be Seb."
Webber was in Thailand for a Red Bull promotion, driving one of the team's F1 cars on the streets of Bangkok.
