Webber sets sights on Alonso
Mark Webber believes Fernando Alonso is the man to beat if the Red Bull driver is to claim his first World Championship this year.
The Australian competitor became only the second man in Formula 1 this year to have won more than one race after he took the chequered flag in the British Grand Prix, adding to his win in Monaco last month. The result of Sunday's race at Silverstone means Webber is just 13 points off overall leader Alonso, who is the other driver to have won two races in 2012. Despite Ferrari having problems during winter testing and in the early part of the season, the Spaniard has got the best out of his car thus far and looks like being a serious contender for the Drivers' Championship. Had it not been for a strategy error at the weekend, Alonso may well have won a third Grand Prix but in the end had to settle for second as Webber passed him with just a few laps remaining. The Red Bull driver is now looking to overtake Alonso in the overall standings but admits there is still a long way to go this season. "I'm not looking at who is third, fourth, fifth," Webber said. "I am looking at the little guy next to me [Alonso] and he's going well as well, so we need to keep pushing hard. "It's a long, long season. I'm not getting too fired up about any particular championship positions. But I have a nice haul of points to keep going with, so it's going well so far."
