Australian Webber won Sunday's race in the Principality with the other podium challengers, Nico Rosberg, both within a chasing gap of less than a single second.

Next up was reigning back to back world champion Vettel.

But when contemplating the 'backing up' theory, Webber insisted in his BBC column: "That is absolute rubbish.

"You always get bitten on the bum when you get fancy. So you just don't try."
