If as is expected the 2012 title battle goes down to the wire, Mark Webber
is not sure he would put his money on his Red Bull teammate. With a 10 point lead over Ferrari
's Fernando Alonso
and the faster car, Sebastian Vettel
is the overwhelming favourite to win his third consecutive drivers' championship late this month.
But according to Webber, who like Vettel also races the RB8, the 25-year-old German should be worried if bad weather is forecast for Sao Paulo. "Sebastian needs dry weather there," the Australian told Austrian Servus TV this week. "He can also drive in the rain, but Fernando is very strong," said Webber. "And it can be wet in Sao Paulo," he added.
Another factor, he said, is the nature of championship showdowns, and the often tumultuous contests that take place at Interlagos. "In Sao Paulo there is always some drama," said Webber. Indeed, he tipped the 2012 finale to be "very dramatic". (GMM)
