Webber dismisses Red Bull exit talk
Friday 15 July 2011
Mark Webber has admitted Sunday's team orders saga has no bearing on his future as he is already in "positive" talks with Red Bull regarding a new contract.
Webber ignored repeated instructions to maintain a gap to team-mate Sebastian Vettel over the closing laps of the British Grand Prix, prompting showdown talks with team principal Christian Horner.
However, Webber yesterday said: "The team and I are talking about whether I continue with Red Bull in 2012 and it's positive. What happened on Sunday does not turn my world upside down.
"Christian and I had a chat about the situation after the race," he added. "We both put our cases forward and I think we came away seeing it from both perspectives. It was obviously a difficult situation, but I still feel comfortable about what I did.
"In that situation, you are hit by conflicting emotions. You want to improve your position, irrespective of who it is in front of you."
