In late June 2013, Mark Webber made an announcement that he wants to leave F1 at the end of the existing period and enter into the 2014 World Endurance Championship in cooperation with Porsche.
This emerged as no big shocker given Mark’s connection of late with his present boss Red Bull Racing. However, the query on everyone’s lips is who will reinstate him.
Red Bull Racing has now given the major hint up till now as to who may finish up being Sebastian Vettel’s group-mate in the next term.
Sebastian has already entered into a deal for 2 more years with the Milton Keynes-based group.
The group has posted a survey on its social networking site, Facebook’s page naming three prospective drivers comprising Daniel Ricciardo and Jean-Eric Vergne from Red Bull’s feeder group Scuderia Torro Rosso, in addition to Kimi Raikkonen of Lotus.
While Raikkonen is undoubtedly the preferred judging by the survey’s outcomes, the concluding verdict will likely come down to who most strategically fits with the group.
As World Car buffs signalize, Sebastian has disclosed to media people that he knows that who will get selected finally.
As per reports, Mark Webber has been a bright envoy for the country like Australia and for motor racing in a 12-year Formula One profession with biggies such as Williams, Jaguar, Minardi as well as Red Bull.
Webber has done a breathtaking job, bagged a few giant races and continued the country’s interest in automobile race alive for over a decade.
At the age of 36, Webber is elegant sufficient to know the time is accurate to watch a novel chapter of his job.
Joining hands with Porsche and its return to international sports vehicle racing is ideal for him.
“We’re pleased to hear he will also stay in the Red Bull kin. I wonder if he is interested in a quiet drive in the rural area around Bathurst by the coming October,” the sources added up.
