Horner: Webber will come back stronger

Christian Horner is adamant that Mark Webber will be a stronger driver next season after his troubles in 2011.

The Aussie had a difficult campaign, falling well short of the mark set down by his Championship-winning team-mate Sebastian Vettel.

However, he came good in Brazil, the final race of the season, beating the gearbox-stricken Vettel to the race victory, his first of the Championship.

"Mark drove well and thoroughly deserved that victory," Horner told the BBC.

"Mark's had a tough year, but he's kept his head down.

"He wanted to finish the year on a high after facing a driver in the form of his life and he's done that.

"I'm sure he'll come back stronger next year."

As for Vettel's troubles, he suffered a gearbox issue early in the grand prix and had to nurse his car home. However, he did so in second place.

"It was a difficult race for Sebastian. He had a gearbox problem form lap five but he kept it alive," said Horner.
