KERS issue hinders Webber's race
28 October 2012 – Mark Webber had to cope with a KERS failure during this afternoon's Indian Grand Prix, with his unit unable to supply the extra 80bhp during the latter stages of the race.
Despite the costly problem, the Australian was able to hold on to claim third place and substantially strengthen Red Bull's hold on the Constructors' Championship.
"I enjoyed the fight today," said Webber. "It was very difficult for me to get into a rhythm, there were a few issues to manage in the car. Without KERS it was very difficult, but I'm happy with how I drove and we'll come back for Abu Dhabi."
Webber still has a mathematical chance of claiming this year's title, but his chances are extremely slim. He is currently 73 points behind leader and Red Bull team-mate Sebastian Vettel, with only 75 available during the final three races of the season.
