Yup,it was a sing of pixxed driver BUT ( hope this is big enough but) Webber shines to me as a driver that has those overreaction moments and it will be interesting to see if he has them in upcoming races. Subconsious is a peculiar thing. :blink:

Webber admits F1 'hunger' might not last

Mark Webber has admitted he might not be "hungry enough" to extend his career beyond 2011.

The Australian has signed on with Red Bull for another season, with some suggesting the short contract extension is a sign of slight tension between him and the Austrian-owned team.

But Webber, 33, insists he only wanted to commit for one more year.

"I am taking each year as it comes now," he is quoted by Auto Bild Motorsport.

"In two years, perhaps I will not be hungry enough anymore," said Webber. "But that doesn't mean I'll end my career in 2011.

"If you had asked me in 2005 if I would still be in Formula One in 2011, I would have said 'no way!'

"People think I'm under pressure because I have to fight each year for a contract, but that's not right."

Webber admitted a future move from Red Bull to another team is "rather unlikely".

He also confessed he is not sure why he is so competitive at the wheel of the RB6, having won two races and is still within sight of the championship lead despite his frightening Valencia crash.

"Why? No idea," said Webber, when asked about his consistency and speed in 2010.

"One thing; in 2009 I was not a big fan of qualifying with full tanks, while this year I'm back in my element with the light cars in Q3," added Webber, who on early Friday morning stunned onlookers by completing a F1 pitstop in front of London's Houses of Parliament.

I think what leo Turini meant about an extended contract between kimi and RB was that RB would continue to sponsor kimi in WRC and not back in F1... cos all of them sound like kimi is not interested to go back to F1 bla bla bla ::oops:;

Off-Topic: show
Brazil is out! I can't believe it! - the referee was blind to many attacks on Kaka etc and as soon as a brailian so much as touches a dutch player, he gets a penalty for it - if anything, I think football needs a massive review about their policy on reviewing the fouls live!!! I wonder if this referee will be investigated for graft like some of the other refs. This insanity has to stop!!

Haugh informally visited kimi is swiss

Mercedes sports boss Norbert Haug has visited, Switzerland, informally (using the official version), Kimi Raikkonen. The 2007 world champion became a coveted man in 2011.
Linked to Red Bull, but also to Mercedes during the winter, the Finn is trying to convince that he is happy in the WRC. Far from his exploits on the F1 circuit. However both teams trying to revive the flame of the 2007 world champion.
Renault initially, which with the support of Mastercard wishes align a line-up worthy of a top team. But as Mercedes GP, which seeks to obscure the identity of its next line-up 2011. The meeting Haug - Raikkonen makes sense and is an attempt to survey, more than a firm commitment to the German mark to obtain the services of Finland. Unlike the French team which, by the voice of its owner Gerard Lopez, Raikkonen made his war-horse for the future. A demonstration that Kubica might like ...
A few days ago, Pirelli has also put in his list of options the Finnish world champion to test future gums 2011 at the wheel of a GP2 or Formula 1 old.
It seems that its agents have greatly reduced the fare for a return of their foal. In the space of one year, Raikkonen's salary rose from 45 million euros, 25 million euros, and now around 16 million euros.

Very confusing..Was Haug there as Kimis friend or trying to convince him to come back or then he might have been giving an insiders knoledge to Kimi..or who knows this is related to Pirelli wanting Kimi to test the tyres.

Yeah, I think so too!

I just hope, that he won't go back. He doesn't F1 to be happy, but they need him, cuz they noticed, that they lost a lot of fans cuz of Kimi's departure. So they wouldn't need him so much, cuz he's a great driver, it's more the fact, that they miss a "PR-machine", who brings fans back.... :<>:

So, Kimi, please stay in WRC, they really appreciate YOU and not only your popularity to bring a racing series forward.... :O
