According to reports in the Spanish press, departing Williams driver Mark Webber is likely to move to the Red Bull team – not Renault – for the 2007 season.
‘AS’ newspaper contradicted rumours in the Budapest paddock on Thursday that put Renault and McLaren higher on the Australian’s list of potential employers, after Sir Frank Williams could not meet his salary demands.
Mark Webber, 29, was asked on Thursday whether his team next year begins with the letters ‘RE’.
”Clever,” he laughed. ”That’s two teams, isn’t it?”
