Webber rubbishes 'camaraderie' quotes

Webber rubbishes 'camaraderie' quotes

Mark Webber has "rubbished" quotes attributed to him about enjoying a "great camaraderie" with Sebastian Vettel.

The relationship between the two took a serious knock at the Malaysian GP when Vettel deliberately disobeyed team orders to take the victory from Webber.

It was not the first incident in the duo's relationship and most likely will not be the last as Vettel made it clear that if the situation ever arose he would do it again.

But despite that, Webber reportedly told IANS that he has a good relationship with his triple World Champion team-mate.

"Now into its seventh season, my partnership with Red Bull Racing is one of the longest between a driver and a team," the 36-year-old told IANS.

"Sebastian and I are a team and we share a great camaraderie."

Asked for his reaction to some of the comments Vettel made in the wake of the Malaysian GP, Webber said: "Look, Sebastian is an experienced driver. Besides, we have a common goal as team-mates to make our team proud.

"We continue to respect each other and will continue to remain focused in wanting to make the team proud."

The Aussie also revealed that he has not given up on beating Vettel to this year's title.

"The goal is always to win. That's what keeps me motivated on the tracks. I will give it my best shot and leave the rest to fate and destiny."

Webber, though, has subsequently come out saying that the IANS quotes are "rubbish."

He wrote on Twitter: "Some rubbish quotes floating around today I hear, good old spin job by someone..."
