Webber turned down Ferrari to stay with Red Bull
16 November, 2012
Ultimately, the Australian decided to stay with the energy drinks owned team, despite confirming suggestions that the team’s driver manager Dr Helmut Marko is keener on Sebastian Vettel.
“Everyone can see where Helmut’s allegiance lies,” Webber told CNN. “But there are two cars and I have the opportunity to drive one of them.”
Previously, Webber and Ferrari had played down their reported links of earlier this year, but the 36-year-old is now more willing to reveal the extent of the talks.
“Ferrari approached us first,” he said. “We made the decision just before Silverstone when both teams seemed pretty interested. I’m happy with that decision.”
