Webber on Vettel: My dad always said you shouldn't hit boys!

Mark Webber, who will be retiring from Formula 1 at the end of the season, has admitted on the most popular TV show in the world, Top Gear, that he will not be missing his teammate Sebastian Vettel.

The 36 year old said that the sport is now “very different” to when he started about 14 years ago. But on the situation of the current crop of Pirelli tyres he told presenter Jeremy Clarkson: “But that’s the way it is.

“We’ve got to learn and get on with it, but you’ve got to be able to push. In Formula 1 it’s about us boys being absolutely on the limit all the time. Or it should be.”

When asked if he would miss his current team mate after he moved to the Le Mans series, he pondered for a while before saying, “Um – am I going to miss Seb? Probably not a huge amount, no. I think in a competitive environment, there’s always going to be a bit of needle; there’s a lot of history between us as well.”

Jeremey being Jeremey, continued to quiz him on if he ever felt like punching Vettel after the Multi-21 saga, and to that Webber said: “My dad always says you shouldn’t hit boys, mate.”

Finally though, Webber did get one up on Vettel and beat the German's time in the 'reasonably priced' Suzuki Liana. Revenge on the track is sweeter: Webber did a lap in Top Gear’s famous ‘reasonably priced’ Suzuki Liana, and pipped Vettel’s best time.
