Webber eyes new Williams deal

Mark Webber, whose contract expires at the end of 2006, says he would like to keep pedalling at Sir Frank Williams’ team.

Due to his links to Renault boss Flavio Briatore, the Australian has been touted as a possible replacement for Fernando Alonso in 2007.

However, even though the future Renault line-up may simply be locked up already, 29-year-old Webber told Reuters that he would be happy if Williams took up an ‘option’ on his expiring two-year deal.

”It’s up to Frank,” he said.

Webber said: ”I hope he likes what he’s seen so far and I still think I’m one of the good guys out there, I keep my head up and keep going.” gmmf1dailyf1news.com
