Webber under investigation in Texas
17 November 2012 – Mark Webber’s Red Bull has become subject to a post-qualifying investigation at the United States Grand Prix. The Australian has qualified third on the grid.
According to an FIA stewards’ report, Webber failed to attend a general weight check which should have happened one minute before the end of Q1.
“I’m pretty happy with qualifying but this is a tricky venue for tyres,” Webber said in the top three press conference. “It’s easy to be outside the window here, so I was happy with the last part of Q3. I had a little problem, which cost us a position, and would have liked some more pace but I’m happy with third and we can have a good race from there.”
The matter is now being looked at by three adjudicators, one of which is former two-time F1 World Champion Emerson Fittipaldi.
Webber reprimanded, no action on Schumacher/Alonso
