Webber not ruling out team switch for 2012 image

(Inautonews.com/GMM) Mark Webber has contradicted Christian Horner’s claim that he will retire if he leaves Red Bull.

Team boss Horner said recently that Australian Webber has “no desire” to switch to a rival camp as his current contract is set to expire at the end of 2011.

The 34-year-old has had a difficult start to the new season but told La Stampa in Turin that he is confident of a surge in form.

“When this championship ends my contract with Red Bull does as well,” Webber told the Italian newspaper. “But I don’t think it depends on the results; I want to win for me.

“We’ll see,” added Webber. “If the team doesn’t want me any more, I will have to ask myself a question — hang up my helmet or change teams?”

He admitted he has “flaws” but said his teammate and reigning world champion Sebastian Vettel does too.

“I’m determined. Last year I fought for the title and I want to do it again.”

As for Vettel, Webber answered: “Sebastian is very fast and he now has a good amount of experience. But he’s not unbeatable.

“I prefer not to talk about his weaknesses, but we all have them,” he insisted.
