Vettel says will miss teammate Mark Webber despite `strained relationship`
London – Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel has said that he will miss his teammate Mark Webber, who will be making his final Formula One appearance in Brazil on Sunday.
According to the Guardian, the relationship between Vettel and Webber has been strained since the pair crashed into each other in the 2010 Turkish Grand Prix and something a lot worse than that since last year’s Brazilian race, when the Australian was less than helpful as the German attempted to close out his third championship.
Vettel said that generally people had a worse impression than the relationship they had, adding that people tend to forget how successful they had been because they were one of the strongest pairings in the sport.
The German added that obviously they did not have the best relationship on a personal level but in terms of working professionally together for the team, they had been very strong.
He further said that he had learnt a lot from Webber and can stand up straight and say that there have been many times when he has benefited from him.
