Webber set for F1 exit?

Webber set for F1 exit?

Mark Webber may have been assured that he is in the running for a race seat at Red Bull in 2014, but a report is linking him with a move away from Formula One.

Red Bull team owner Dietrich Mateschitz has made it clear that the Australian is one of the candidates for next year despite the recent controversy at Malaysia where team-mate Sebastian Vettel ignored team orders to overtake Webber.

"Whether he retires, only he will choose, but Mark is definitely a candidate for 2014," Mateschitz told Germany's Speedweek.

Webber, though, may not stay in Formula One next year as he Germany's Bild claims he is in talks with Porsche to spearhead their return to Le Mans in 2014.

The F1 veteran took part in the 1998 and 1999 Le Mans with Mercedes, but he could be behind the wheel of the new LMP1 sportscar at next year's race if the German marque has its way.
