Webber could have joined BMW
10 March 2006 – Williams driver Mark Webber has said he could have joined BMW this season, but decided to stay at Williams to prove the team he can do a good job. In 2005 Webber ended up on the podium in Monaco and started from the front row in Spain.
Speaking about his meeting with Dr. Mario Theissen in Turkey Webber said: "Yeah, he asked me about my contract," Webber admitted to the Independent. "I could have gone, but I decided to stay here. I came here wanting to prove to Frank and Patrick that I can do a bloody good job, but the circumstances last year were not the best. I know I can race. If it's with this team, great."
