Mark Webber has indicated that he will feature on next year’s starting grid although it may not necessarily be with Red Bull.

The Australian driver will be out of contract at the end of the season and has been rumoured to replace Felipe Massa at Ferrari in 2013, one of the options the 35-year-old may have.

"For next year there is a pretty decent chance I'll be racing in Formula 1," Webber is quoted saying by Reuters. "Let's see, come November, who it is with."

Webber stood victorious at the British Grand Prix becoming the second driver to win multiple races this season boosting his chances of extending his future in the sport.

"It helps my situation to stay in Formula 1," he said referring to the win. "At the start of the year I didn’t have a contract, I’m pushing to get a contract for next year. Going reasonably well, got a few points, a couple of wins and I will work very hard to try and stay in Formula 1 next year."
