Webber driving 'well' this season

Despite lagging behind his team-mate in the standings, Mark Webber reckons he has driven well at the start of 2013.

The Red Bull racer has 32 points from four grands prix including a runner-up result at the controversial Malaysian GP.

However, a retirement a race later in China - through no fault of his own - has put the Aussie over 40 points behind Sebastian Vettel in the Drivers' standings.

"I think I had good momentum over the winter and drove well in the first three races," he told Autosport.

"China was disappointing but apart from that I'm pretty happy with my performances."

His came from China with a seventh-placed result in Bahrain, finishing the grand prix in the same position he started after taking a three-place penalty on the grid.

"I don't think I've ever had a good result around that track, so that's a bit of a bogey circuit," he said.

"But we're going to get to Europe, regroup, and go get them."
