Heading to Round 5 of the 2012 World Championship in Spain, Mark Webber is yet to win a Grand Prix. Having finished fourth in every race so far this season, the Australian now hopes to repeat his Barcelona result of two years ago by leaping back up to the top of the podium.
Webber boasts a strong record at the Circuit de Catalunya, having scored two points for Jaguar in 2003 and a front row starting position with Williams two years later. In 2008 came a top five finish for Red Bull, followed by a podium result when Jenson Button won for Brawn GP. However, it was 2010 when he celebrated victory (top).
“It’s the first European race of the season, so it will be all hands on deck after a successful Mugello test,” he says. “It was a tricky start to the test, but it finished off well and we head to Barcelona with good miles on the car and an understanding of some new avenues.
“I like the Barcelona track; we do a lot of (pre-season) work there and it’s a track that’s been good to me in the past. I got pole there for the last two years and converted it to a win in 2010, so I’m looking for a strong weekend. It’s tight amongst the teams, so we’re mindful that we need to get everything right to get a good weekend.”
Ironically, following his quartet of fourth place results so far in 2012, Webber returns to Barcelona after also finishing fourth in the 2011 race there.
