Webber won't be gifted a win

Webber won't be gifted a win

Mark Webber has been informed that Red Bull and Sebastian Vettel won't gift him a victory during his final Grand Prix, at Interlagos this week.

The Australian is quitting Formula One at the end of the season and Red Bull boss Christian Horner believes it would be fitting for the 37-year-old to sign off with a victory in Brazil.

Vettel, however, is looking to extend his record-break run of victories to nine and is unlikely to sacrifice a victory in order to appease Horner and Webber.

"It would be great to see him win his final race - what a way to sign out - but Sebastian is going to be going for that record as well," Horner said.

"As usual it will be a straight fight between the pair of them. Mark would not want to be gifted a win."

Despite wrapping up both the Drivers' and Constructors' Championship titles earlier in the season, Horner insisted that Red Bull are still striving to improve.

"You only have to look in the eyes of every single member of the team to see the motivation and desire that still exists," he continued.

"Even though we won the championship in India we have been pushing flat out.

"And, as I have always said, we will continue to do so until the chequered flag in Brazil next weekend.

"The target now is to try to get Mark the third place in the drivers' championship and see out the season in style.

"There is nobody lacking motivation or being complacent in any way."
