"Is this what we want"

The Australian defends the rivalry between Hamilton and Verstappen: "It's brilliant." And he does not want the FIA to intervene between the two.


A resounding "no" was Mark Webber's response when asked this Tuesday at a W Series press conference if Formula 1 should intervene to stop the growing tension between Mercedes and Red Bull. A rivalry that the former driver, among others from the Austrian team, qualifies as "brilliant". "It is exactly what we want," defended the Australian who speaks from the skin of one more fan.

"Silverstone was extraordinary. I think it was one of the best first laps we've seen in a long time. They saved at Turn 1 at the start, then they went wheel-to-wheel towards Brooklands, and obviously Lewis tried it at Copse and not it totally worked. You could see it coming, they had some brilliant wheel-to-wheel battles: Barcelona, Imola, Bahrain… we all knew this was going to happen. Let more come, "he enthused.

After what happened during and after the British Grand Prix between the two strongest teams in the World Championship, the expectation generated by the fight for the title at the Hungaroring will be maximum but Webber does not get wet: "I think Lewis is magical in Budapest, he is absolutely phenomenal on that track. Mind you, Max is skilled too. I think Red Bull will be strong on that track, so Max could have a Red Bull Ring weekend - pole and then disappear. Lewis might not land a hit ".

"Hamilton has won many races at the Hungaroring with an inferior car. Races he had no right to win, but he won. He's going to need to be at his best again. Verstappen is ... you know, a gladiator," commented the Australian that if something is clear is that we are going to witness "a good weekend" .
