Webber not to play supporting role at Red Bull in 2013

Mark Webber will try and beat his rivals including newly-crowned triple world champion and teammate Sebastian Vettel, dismissing any suggestions that he would take a backseat at Red Bull next season.

The Australian finished the year in sixth place, 102 points behind Vettel, with Webber registering just two victories against his teammate’s five.

At the season-finale Brazilian Grand Prix, Webber had moved over in the middle of the race to let the German by when the pair were bunched together, for which the team thanked the 36-year-old, but Vettel can expect no such favours in 2013.

"Obviously with Sebastian's form, he's clearly on the front foot,” Webber was quoted saying by Reuters.

"I don't go there thinking I've got to be playing a team role as such. I'm there for myself, to get the best results possible and to do that I need to be part of the team,” he added. "So, no, I'm not going there thinking in a supporting role at all."

In the four seasons since the two have been paired up, Webber is yet to upstage his teammate in the drivers’ championship.
