Webber: Wasn't worth finishing

Webber: Wasn't worth finishing

Mark Webber says attempting to finish Sunday's Italian GP on his shot Pirelli tyres was not worth the "couple of points" he would have scored.

The Australian had been on track for a handful of points when, with four laps to go, his worn rear tyres resulted in a massive moment for him at the Ascari chicane.

Webber dropped down to tenth before opting to make his way back to the pits, calling it quits.

"At the end I had no rear tyres left - I was obviously pushing hard," he told the BBC. "And for the sake of a couple of points I could have not pushed as hard.

"The rear tyres were completely finished though."

However, it wasn't just Webber who had a bad day at the office as his team-mate Sebastian Vettel retired earlier.

As such, Sunday's 53-lap race was Red Bull's first in 34 in which they did not score a single World Championship point.

"It was a poor day for us as a team, I'm not sure the last time it happened. We've had a few technical issues and we put ourselves on the back-foot today."
