Webber bemoans poor race day

Webber bemoans poor race day

Another race weekend, another frustrating weekend for Mark Webber with the Red Bull driver finishing fifth at Spa.

The Australian started third on the grid behind Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel, but he was already struggling before the lights even went out as he had a problem with his clutch.

Things didn't go much better at the start as he dropped to sixth place after the opening lap. Although he managed to recover he found himself stuck behind Nico Rosberg in fourth place and was unable to push for the podium place.

"We were worried before the start of the race," said the Australian. "The preparation was poor. We were on the back foot. We tried our best, but we had top gear to race in clear air.

"The two practice starts we did were diabolical. The clutch was like tractor. That's where we were. It turned out to be not great. In the end, you murder the tyres trying to recover and it just snowballs. The win would have been difficult, but we had pace for the podium."
