Webber staying realistic from seventh on grid
22 September 2012 – Red Bull was expected to be at or near the front for the Singapore Grand Prix, returning to a high-downforce circuit after struggling on the straights of Spa and Monza. Qualifying turned out to be a tricky affair, with Sebastian Vettel third and Mark Webber only seventh.
“It’s disappointing to be seventh, but it’s a long race and we have a chance to get something from it.”
Webber heads into Sunday’s race fifth in the Drivers’ Championship and 47 points behind leader Fernando Alonso. Three years ago, the Queanbeyan man’s title hopes ended in Marina Bay as he suffered a brake failure at Sheares Corner, Turn 1.
