Horner praises Webber win

by Setanta Staff , 08 July 2012

Red Bull Team Principal Christian Horner has revealed his delight with Mark Webber's victory at the British Grand Prix on Sunday.

After two days of wet weather at Silverstone, the race itself was run in sunshine and the Australian used all his experience to deal with the conditions and secure his second win of the season ahead of second-placed Fernando Alonso of Ferrari and his team-mate Sebastian Vettel in third.

Webber's future with the Milton Keynes-based outfit remains unclear, but Horner has insisted talks will begin in the near future.

"It was a flat out race. We elected to start on the soft, surprised to see Fernando on hard but we knew we would be quicker at the end of the race," Horner said.

"Mark was quick when we needed him to be and the pass was fantastic. Mark this year has been in great form. He is enjoying his driving again and his performance here has been very strong.

"To win just up the road from where he lives is fantastic. Mark is doing great for us, we love having him in the team. We have agreed to sit down in the next couple of weeks [and discuss his future]."
