Following his outstanding maiden Grand Prix victory last round, the good news for Mark Webber keeps on coming with confirmation that he has re-signed with Red Bull Racing for the 2010 Formula One season.
A confident Webber says he has enjoyed his time with the Milton-Keynes based team and is keen to carry on, “I’m extremely happy that Red Bull and I have been able to agree to race together again next year.
“Even in the leaner and tougher years at the start of my relationship with the team, I’ve always enjoyed working with them, so now to go through this purple patch, which we hope will continue for a good while to come, makes the work even more enjoyable.”
Webber, not done with the current year, already has his sights set on the 2010 season, “We’ve got a very exciting finish to this year’s Championship, but I’m also looking forward to helping to develop and race the RB6 in the 2010 World Championship.”
Mark will join current teammate Sebastian Vettel next year and as you would expect team boss Christian Horner is happy with his driver pairing, “I’m delighted that we have re-signed Mark for 2010. He has continued to show huge commitment and determination this season, especially following his bike accident at the end of last year.
“His recent results show he is on the form of his life – most notably with his recent win at the German GP – and he has the motivation to deliver at the highest level. It was therefore a straightforward decision to extend the relationship. We believe that the driver line-up of Mark and Sebastian is one of the strongest in the sport.”
