Webber congratulates 'champion' Vettel on completing hat trick of F1 titles

Sydney, Mon, 26 Nov 2012 ANI

Sydney, Nov 26(ANI): Red Bull driver Mark Webber has congratulated team-mate Sebastian Vettel on winning third straight Formula One driver's championship in the season-ending Brazilian Grand Prix, saying the German is in a club of his own.

Webber came in fourth to finish sixth overall in the title race but said the 25-year-old German had achieved something very, very special after a wild and rain-hit event at Interlagos.

"He's in a club on his own now. Very, very special to do it three times in a row. Last year was a little more straightforward, but this year was a bit more difficult, as was 2010," News.com.au quoted Webber, as saying.

"Three in a row is going some, for sure. So I congratulate him, it's a great effort," he added.

Ironically, Webber almost made contact with Vettel at a rolling re-start following a mid-race Safety Car intervention, before diving onto the run-off.

"I was up nice and high and I was trying to get back into it, but I was on the white line and I had absolutely no grip," said Webber.

"I tried to go wide and stay away from Sebastian. It was quite a tricky race for Seb and I... The temperature wasn't super-easy for us to get into the car. But that race - it didn't disappoint in terms of drama, did it?" he added. (ANI)
