Mark Webber dismisses retirement speculations
Sydney: Red Bull driver Mark Webber has dismissed speculations that he is ready to quit Formula One for a career in sports cars racing after being linked with a move to Porsche to race at the Le Mans 24 Hour Race.
Webber, who will take part in his 200th grand prix in Bahrain this weekend, has cut a forlorn figure in the world championship this season after the controversy of the Malaysian Grand Prix when his teammate Sebastian Vettel ignored team orders to snatch victory.
Stating that people have made unnecessary assumptions about him, Webber said that he is looking forward to racing with Red Bull this season, adding that as long he is competitive and getting work, things will go well for him.
Mentioning his future with Red Bull in the 2014 championship, Webber said that he still enjoys driving their cars and has a good camaraderie with the team, even though his job has become more challenging because of the change in tyres.
Webber further hinted that he will not quit Red Bull over his tensions with Vettel, saying that although he has become less tolerant over such issues as he grew older, the urge to drive the car remains strong in him.
