Webber en un R8 sobre Raikkonen en un F430


Recommended Posts

Article from Wheels magazine, sept 2007, written by Peter Robinson.


"After the F1 chat, I'm keen to ask about Webber's road car. Red Bull is powered by a Renault V8, so, not suprisingly given the commercial ties, he drives an "awesome" R26 Renault Megane, which replaces the BMW M5 at his disposal during his time at Williams BMW. In Formula One, sponsors always come first.


But that doesn't stop Webber, straight forward as always, ignoring the politically correct answer.


"The best road car I have driven is the Audi R8," he says. "A few of us [drivers] spent a track day recently at the Paul Ricard [the Bernie Ecclestone-owned circuit in the south of France].


"Kimi [Raikkonen] almost destroyed the latest Ferrari F430 trying to keep up [with the Audi]. 'I can't hang on to you; you're too quick,' he told us.


The R8 is an awesome piece of kit, phenomenal."
