The Mercury Cars Guide : September 18th 2010
24--- Classifieds 62 300 400 • carsguide.com.au Saturday, September 18, 2010 FORMULA One RACE WHEELS James Bresnehan EUROPEAN FAREWELL: Success at Monza continues to elude Mark Webber. Italian disagrees with Webber R ED BULL rocket Mark Webber is happy to say goodbye to Europe holding the lead in the Formula One driver's world championship as the series now heads to Asia. Webber had never finished in the top six at Monza before last weekend, and that's exactly where he crossed the line in the Italian GP after starting fourth on the grid. That was enough to clinch a five-point lead over McLaren's Lewis Hamilton. Monza may be one of F1's most iconic circuits, but it is no friend of Red Bull. ''On paper, Monza isn't one of Red Bull Racing's strongest tracks,'' Webber said. ''The circuit's long straights put an onus on straight-line speed, which isn't the forte of our RB6.'' Monza, he said, was a fantastic place to see out the European F1 season. ''The place is steeped in history and the Italian fans, the Tifosi, always ensure there's a special atmosphere,'' he said. ''They're only interested in the red machines, but they have a passion for F1 that sees them give all of the drivers a good welcome.'' But Webber was frustrated that he did not cash in on Hamilton's early exit from the race. ''We could have got more points, so it's a bit disappointing but at least we got some,'' he said. ''We lost out on the start and the first lap. ''And I lost a lot of time behind Nico Hulkenburg. He seemed to spend every second lap going through the chicane, but the stewards left him alone, which was frustrating. ''We were convinced that he'd get a penalty for bolting the chicane too many times, and I understand that he got a warning from Charlie [Whiting, FIA race director], but he was never asked to relinquish his position. ''I got him in the end, but I lost a lot of time. ''But I had a better day than Lewis and got more points. '' It's good to get some points, but you always want a bit more. It could have been worse for us,'' Webber said. Red Bull team boss Christian Horner was not impressed by Hulkenburg's driving. ''The unfortunate thing was the time that Mark lost behind Hulkenburg, who went off the circuit a few too many times in our opinion,'' Horner said. ''But we got very valuable points. Our objective prior to the weekend was to try to limit the damage. ''So to come out of the weekend back in the lead of the Driver's Championship with Mark, while extending the lead of the Constructors Championship, is more than we could have expected.'' The championship heads to Singapore next weekend, then to Japan, Korea, Brazil and Abu Dhabi. formula one standings 1 Mark Webber 187 2 Lewis Hamilton 182 3 Fernando Alonso 166 4 Jenson Button 165 5 Sebastian Vettel 163 6 Felipe Massa 124 7 Nico Rosberg 112 8 Robert Kubica 108 9 Michael Schumacher 46 10 Adrian Sutil 45 www.djmotors.com.au email@example.com Glenorchy 275 Main Road, Glenorchy Phone: 6213 3315 Brian Anning 0418 531 853 Chris Wakefield 0400 635 446 Allan Gebel 0428 729 659 Hobart 1a Brisbane Street, Hobart Phone: 6213 3300 Warren Amos 0417 544 829 Jason Spong 0408 473 756 Easy finance available with DJ Financial Services †To approved business clients only, with a $2,500 deposit over five years with a 30% residual payment. 1.
