Ultimately, the Australian decided to stay at Red Bull, despite confirming suggestions the team's driver manager Dr Helmut Marko is keener on Sebastian Vettel.

"Everyone can see where Helmut's allegiance lies," Webber told CNN.

"But there are two cars and I have the opportunity to drive one of them."

Previously, Webber and Ferrari have played down their reported links earlier this year, but the 36-year-old is now more willing to reveal the extent of the talks.

"Ferrari approached us first," he said.

"We made the decision just before Silverstone when both teams seemed pretty interested. I'm happy with that decision."
