Webber says team switch is right decision

Mark Webber says life will definitely be better after he switches from Williams to Red Bull at the end of the 2006 season.

Close to the end of his worst season since debuting for Minardi in 2002, the Australian said from his home in Buckinghamshire (England): ”I want to get out there and win.

”(I want to) win some bloody races, and get on with it.”

Also not since he drove for Minardi did Webber qualify as poorly as at Monza just over a week ago.

So the 30-year-old is confident that moving to Red Bull, despite earlier hoping to win the world championship with the Williams team he joined last year, is the right decision for 2006.

Webber said: ”You can’t have a season as bad as this, really. Next year will be better and I’m very confident of that.”

He expressed frustration at the poor reliability of his current Cosworth-powered car, which he is set to drive in the remaining three races of the season.

”I am very fortunate in a way to have a fresh chance to throw my career back on track, because it’s been a tough two years at Williams,” Webber said.

”I still believe I’ve got a good four or five years left in me to compete at the highest level.”
