Webber puzzled by van der Garde driving

Mark Webber was left puzzled by Giedo van der Garde's driving during the Canadian Grand Prix.

The Red Bull driver looked set for an intense battle with Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso for the final two podium positions behind Sebastian Vettel, but he had to settle for fourth place in the end after his front wing was damaged midway through the race by the Caterham driver.

Webber was left scratching his head after his race was compromised when he made contact with van der Garde.

"It was pretty knackered to be fair, it didn't help from then on, I don't know what he [ Van der Garde] was doing, we had blue flags there but in the end he kept trying to make the apex but I don't know. Some guys maybe have their eye too much on their drive," he is quoted as saying by BBC Sport.

Webber also had a nice battle with Nico Rosberg during the early stages of the race over P3, but he admits he didn't have much of a chance once he had his run-in with van der Garde.

"The car was very hot so we had to stay out of the slipstream. The car was tough in traffic but when I got past him it was all okay, but I didn't have long before I then suffered the damage."
