Beijing, Apr 16 (ANI): Red Bull Racing engineer Cyril Dumont has claimed that Formula 1 star Mark Webber is doing better at Red Bull this year than his double world champion teammate Sebastian Vettel.
Webber scored his third consecutive fourth place in Sunday's Chinese Grand Prix, beating Vettel home by one spot.
The Australian has reportedly outqualified Vettel in each of this season's races, apart from Melbourne when Vettel was second; and has somehow managed to finish the round ahead of him.
"Mark tends to be able to get around the problems and adapt and seem less suffering. But for Sebastian, each ingredient needs to be at its optimum for him to have full confidence and get the performance out," Fox Sports quoted Dumont, as saying.
Webber is now fourth in the world championship, just nine points from the top of the table, which Lewis Hamilton occupies from McLaren teammate Jenson Button and Ferrari's Fernando Alonso.
"I'm pretty happy with fifth given the poor first lap. I missed out on the start, I wasn't entirely happy finding the revs and I lost the initial bit when the lights went off," Vettel confessed, while Webber described yet another fourth place as "not too bad".
Dumont, who works with Vettel through Red Bull's engine supplier Renault, pointed out that the German has lost the edge he had over Webber in the past two seasons. (ANI)
