Webber: Front row is what we deserved
7 July 2012 – Mark Webber was left in a positive frame of mind after claiming second on the grid for Sunday’s British Grand Prix, explaining that a front row starting position is what he and Red Bull deserved. The Australian missed out on pole position to Fernando Alonso by just 50 thousandths of a second, but vowed not to dwell on the small margin.
"In every session we went out the times were changing by up to five or six seconds per lap; there was a lot of standing water and aqua planning. I was happy I was competitive when it counted.
“You have to put it all on the line in Q3. Alonso put a lap together that was just that sniff better than mine, but I’m not standing here with any regrets about my lap. I’m happy with what I put on the table and front row was what we deserved.”
Sebastian Vettel will form the second row with team-mate Webber, having slightly drifted away from the leading pace in the third and final phase of qualifying.
