Mark Webber on Thursday said he is "positive" of his chances of staying with Red Bull in 2012.

Although team boss Christian Horner was reportedly furious when the Australian ignored team orders at Silverstone, owner Dietrich Mateschitz this week suggested the 34-year-old will almost certainly be staying on board.

Webber confirmed to BBC Sport: "The team and I are talking about whether I continue with Red Bull in 2012 and it's positive.

"What happened on Sunday does not turn my world upside down."

But despite the potentially serious implications of his actions, Webber insists he has no regrets about refusing to back off the tail of his teammate Sebastian Vettel.

"It was obviously a difficult situation, but I still feel comfortable about what I did," he said.

"Christian and I had a chat about the situation after the race. We both put our cases forward and I think we came away seeing it from both perspectives," added Webber.
