Webber not ruling out team switch for 2012

By Motorsport.com/GMM

Mark Webber has contradicted Christian Horner's claim that he will retire if he leaves Red Bull.

Team boss Horner said recently that Australian Webber has "no desire" to switch to a rival camp as his current contract is set to expire at the end of 2011.

The 34-year-old has had a difficult start to the new season but told La Stampa in Turin that he is confident of a surge in form.

"When this championship ends my contract with Red Bull does as well," Webber told the Italian newspaper. "But I don't think it depends on the results; I want to win for me.

"We'll see," added Webber. "If the team doesn't want me any more, I will have to ask myself a question -- hang up my helmet or change teams?"

He admitted he has "flaws" but said his teammate and reigning world champion Sebastian Vettel does too.

"I'm determined. Last year I fought for the title and I want to do it again."

As for Vettel, Webber answered: "Sebastian is very fast and he now has a good amount of experience. But he's not unbeatable.

"I prefer not to talk about his weaknesses, but we all have them," he insisted.
