Webber's ability to handle pressure comes under scanner

Sydney, Jan. 9 (ANI): Red Bull motorsport advisor Helmut Marko has said he has doubts on Australian Formula One ace Mark Webber's ability to cope with the pressures of an F1 title fight.

In a revealing interview with Red Bull's in-house magazine the Red Bulletin, Marko suggested Webber was good enough to win races but struggled for consistency, reports News.com.au.

Marko said it seems to him that seems Webber is unbeatable on average two races per year, but he can't maintain his form throughout the year. If some technical mishap occurs, like with the alternator for example, he falls relatively easily into a downward spiral, he added.

Marko believes Webber has struggled to cope with the psychological challenge of team-mate Sebastien Vettel arriving at Red Bull.

Webber won two races in 2012 in Monaco and Britain and finished sixth in the championship. (ANI)
