After all the furore surrounding the Malaysian Grand Prix, you’ve thought Mark Webber would have wanted a nice, quiet weekend to get his campaign back on track. What he got was more fuel to the ongoing conspiracy theories and rumours of where he’ll be next season.
If running out fuel wasn’t enough, he then got completely removed from qualifying and started from the pitlane, and then slammed into Jean Eric Vergne (who, in a Toro Rosso, you’d have thought would have been an easy pass). Then his wheel falls off, and he gets a grid penalty for Bahrain for his troubles. Not a good few days for the Sett’s favourite Aussie.
Yet, through it all, he was heavlily linked with driving for Porsche in sportscars from 2014 onwards. Even if this isn’t true, after a race like he had, Mark would be looking for a better turn of events in the next few races.
