Mark Webber has revealed he will prioritise Red Bull as he plans for his twelfth season in formula one in 2013. The energy drink owned team has indicated it is likely to extend the 35-year-old Australian's latest one-year contract. But Webber has also been linked with a move to Ferrari alongside Fernando Alonso.

He told French broadcaster TF1 that he would like clarity in "a few months". "First I will talk with my team, because I would be happy to continue here," Webber, this year's Monaco winner and currently second behind Alonso in the drivers' championship, said. Webber said he clearly plans to stay in F1. "I'm motivated, I feel good, I've got a great job to drive the fastest cars on the world's best stretches of road. That's a dream," he insisted.

He does expect some "changes" in the lineups at the "top four teams" for 2013. "I think given Felipe (Massa)'s results there could be a change there," said Webber. "It's such a great team with great history. It's also unclear what's happening with Michael (Schumacher); the same goes for me at Red Bull and Lewis (Hamilton) at McLaren." (GMM)
