Webber wants maiden Monza podium

Webber wants maiden Monza podium

Mark Webber is chasing his first Italian GP podium in what will be his very last visit to Monza as a Formula One driver.

In 11 seasons in the sport, Webber has never excelled at the Italian Grand Prix. In fact the nine-time grand prix has never even finished on the Monza podium.

The Red Bull racer's best result in Italy so far was the sixth-placed he secured in 2010. That was also the last time he was in the points as he crashed out the following season and in 2012 was classified P20 despite not reaching the chequered flag.

This year, in what will be his final Italian Grand Prix, the 37-year-old is hoping for better.

"I like Monza a lot because it's very Formula One in terms of its history and its atmosphere," said the Aussie. "All of the greats have raced there and I have an affinity with Italians from my Minardi days.

"The track is one of a kind, it's an incredibly fast circuit with high top speeds, so there's a lot of heavy braking.

"Monza has never been that kind to me; I've had a few retirements and have never finished on the podium, so I want to get a good result there this year!"
