When Mark Webber pitted for a third time in Budapest on Sunday, the Australian hoped those ahead would soon start to suffer with major tyre problems. As it happened, he lost three positions and crucially allowed Fernando Alonso to jump back ahead of him.
Webber remains second in the championship after Hungary, having fallen from fifth to eighth in the closing stages, but now sits 40 points behind the Spaniard in the championship.
“We hoped the people in front would be in a bit more trouble than that,” Australian Webber admitted in the paddock. “We ended up losing three places…and that was after I had thought about staying out, because we had quite a nice cushion.
“Plenty of times this year, we have seen that drivers suddenly fall off the cliff, and we were hoping it was going to happen again. We tried something different and lost three positions.”
Webber was the winner of the Hungarian Grand Prix two years ago.
