Webber to race for Red Bull in 2012
Australian Mark Webber has signed a contract extension at Red Bull that will see him drive a Red Bull Racing F1 car in 2012 as well. Putting an end to wild speculations, Webber will once more be paired up with Sebastian Vettel.
In a statement Mark Webber said: "I want to continue racing at the top in Formula One so it’s a nobrainer to remain at Red Bull Racing for another year. My motivation to achieve the best results possible both for myself and the team is still very high. Over the past five years, we have worked hard and proved that we can design and build a competitive and championship-winning car, and I’m looking forward to putting the car and myself on the limit again each and every race weekend in 2012."
Christian Horner said: “When we sat down and started talking about 2012, it was immediately obvious that Mark and the team wanted to continue our successful relationship. This meant agreeing an extension for 2012 was very straightforward. Mark knows the team well, having been with us since 2007, and his motivation, fitness and commitment is as high as it has ever been. The pairing of Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel is a very strong one, they push each other hard and we are extremely happy the pairing will remain unchanged for a fourth season.”
