Mark Webber, the veteran Australian driver, is the talk of the town amid speculations suggesting a possible move to Ferrari from his current team. Having a rolling contract for this season he always played stooge to Vettel.
Albeit Alonso being so consistent in scoring points and sometimes winning the races in possible conditions, in order to notch Constructors’ crown he definitely need a back up which Massa refuses to deliver.
Connections have always been there linking Hamilton, Button, Rosberg and recently Perez for a Ferrari switch over. Erstwhile, Ferrari were famous in luring drivers who often succeeded or promising talents who struggle with the middle orders.
Webber had come in to the act as he has affable relation with Fernando Alonso and also hoping to cope with the Ferrari’s main man. Massa has a dreary season so far after having managed only 45% off the points taken by Alonso last season.
At the Bahrain race, Ferrari finished seventh and ninth registering their first double finish of the season. Not enough if they have any hopes sighted on securing constructors’ title for the first time since 2008.
The elder statesman is a different breed, so determined and often forthright. Ferrari’s only option would be, if anything they desperately need to try is going for Sergio Perez.
Then again, he is too young for Ferrari to be considered. Robert Kubica’s return is often a myth. When he comes back, it is difficult to know if he can be faster around again considering the injuries he sustained last February.
Webber is willing to race only if he gets a chance in a top team for few seasons in future. The ideal choice would be Ferrari, Mercedes or Mclaren. He had recently dismissed the claims while saying he was just another Ferrari-Rumour. He also said he had contact with Ferrari.
But there are likely chances for the rumour to get real before the season falls away from the hands of Ferrari. Any driver will fantasise a Ferrari cap before their career end though.
