With Juan Pablo Montoya moving to McLaren in 2005, Mark Webber has been speculated to be the top of Williams' list for replacing the Colombian but the Australian says he is committed to Jaguar -- for the moment. Webber has a contract with Jaguar through 2005 but admits he admires Williams.

"There is no question that I want to win Grands Prix and it is my job to do the best I can for the team I drive for, which at this stage is Jaguar for next year and maybe the year after," said Webber.

"I make no secret of the fact that I admire the way Williams go about their work. But I'm massively focused towards Jaguar at the moment and I'm looking forward to staying with them for the next few years. But we'll see what happens. I've just got to keep driving."

It has been rumoured that Williams is most peeved with Montoya's decision and there may be a parting of the ways before Juan Pablo's contract is done, but Mario Thiessen dismissed that idea.

"That will not happen," said the BMW motorsport director. "Speculation suggesting it will has just been made up. We will be using the current pairing of Ralf Schumacher and Montoya for next season."

Jaguar will launch the R4 on January 18th 2004 at the Circuit de Catalunya in Spain but has yet to announce a teammate for Webber.
