Mark Webber is carefully reviewing the German Grand Prix before heading out to Budapest this week, having both started and finished eighth at Hockenheim. The Australian, who qualified third but was handed a five-place grid drop for a gearbox change, struggled to make any major impression in Sunday afternoon’s race.
Scoring just four points for eighth place in comparison with Fernando Alonso’s 25 for victory, Webber has lost a further 21 to the Spaniard is now trails the championship leader by 34 at the halfway point of the season.
“I had no pace today and wasn’t quick,” Webber said in Germany. “I couldn’t stay with people that I normally can, so we’ll look into it and come back in Budapest. I’m disappointed, as I expected to get more out of today’s race.
“Normally Sundays have been okay for me, but not today. After the first lap it wasn’t too bad, I got Lewis (Hamilton), but after that I was just hanging on.”
During the middle of the race, the Queanbeyan man was seen to struggle particularly with tyres and was unable to attack the track as team-mate Sebastian Vettel did.
