Porsche has not ruled out signing Webber as Le Mans driver

Apr.3 (GMM) Porsche has refused to deny rumours it is lining up Mark Webber to lead its charge with a new Le Mans prototype next year.

Amid the 'Multi-21' affair and claims the Australian's place is now untenable alongside Sebastian Vettel at Red Bull, German newspaper Bild reported that the 36-year-old and Porsche have "already been in contact" regarding a 2014 deal.

Asked about the Webber rumours, a spokesman for the carmaker told SID news agency: "Porsche already has a squad of internationally successful works drivers.

"This is a very good basis for the assignment of the corresponding (Le Mans) cockpits.

"Whether and to what extent additional drivers are added will be decided at a later date," spokesman Oliver Hilger added.
