Webber: So let's see

Webber: So let's see

Chasing his first win of the campaign, Mark Webber is hoping his strategy of qualifying on the Prime tyres pays dividends in Sunday's Indian GP.

While his team-mate Sebastian Vettel went out on the soft tyres for his run in Q3, Webber went with a different strategy.

The Aussie, who has yet to win a grand prix in his final season in Formula One, put the Prime tyres on and posted a 1:25.047.

That time put him fourth on the grid behind Vettel and the two Mercs, who like the German went with the soft tyres.

"We thought it was worth trying something a little bit different with the strategy today, so that's why we ran the Primes in Q3," he explained.

"We thought we would probably be a bit further back than the second row to be honest, so it turned out to be a good session for us.

"It's not easy to manage the Primes when you just get a look at them in Q3, but I think we did a good job and we didn't leave too much out there."

From his position of fourth on the grid, Webber is hoping to launch a challenge as those ahead will need to stop long before him.

"We're in a good position to capitalise on a different approach tomorrow. The Option tyre shouldn't last too long and we'll be on a different strategy.

"That said, I'll still have to use the softer tyre in the race at some point, so let's see."
