Webber hoping for 'smooth' finale

Webber hoping for 'smooth' finale

Mark Webber is hoping to end his 2012 campaign on a strong note and after the chequered flag in Brazil.

The penultimate grand prix of the season, the US GP, ended prematurely for Webber as he was forced to park his RB8 when it suffered an alternator failure.

It was not the first time this season that he had experienced troubles, whether caused by rivals, his own car or his Pirelli tyres.

The Aussie, though, is hoping to avoid all that this weekend as he bids for a tenth career victory.

"Brazil is a great way to finish the year," said last year's Brazilian GP winner.

"It's one of my most favourite weekends because of the history with the drivers they've had; Senna, Piquet and Fittipaldi, these guys did a huge amount for the sport.

"Interlagos is a legendary circuit, it's got a great atmosphere, there's always been a bit of drama and also there is always a bit of weather floating around.

"It's a grand prix that I have done well at in the past.

"It would be good to have a smooth weekend with no issues, a clean start and the car running smoothly for the whole weekend, then I'm sure we can finish the season very strongly."
