Quitting never on my mind - Webber



Red Bull driver Mark Webber on Thursday denied suggestions he had been on the verge of quitting the team and said he was looking forward to moving on from the team orders controversy in Malaysia.

Webber was incensed after teammate Sebastian Vettel ignored team instructions three weeks ago at Sepang to snatch the lead and claim victory in the most contentious of circumstances.

The Australian said in the immediate aftermath that he was heading back home to Australia and had plenty to think about, prompting claims he was considering his immediate future with the team.

"First of all, I'm definitely keen to finish the season. A lot of people were even questioning that one, which was certainly not something in my mind," he told a press conference in Shanghai ahead of the Chinese Grand Prix.

Sporting a new haircut he added: "I'm fine. I was always going to Australia anyway after that race.

"Procedurally the team, everything is fine. It was an interesting race in Malaysia but I'm looking forward to racing again.

"I think we've proved the car is pretty competitive in the first few races. Not dominating by any means, nobody is doing that as yet."

Asked if he would accept a contract with Red Bull next season, the 36-year-old said: "I am keen to race this year and put together a very strong campaign.

"Come the summer and I will speak to Dietrich (Mateschitz, Red Bull owner) and we will go from there.

"I have never ever made decisions in my career at this point of the season and I don't see why I should make any decisions at the moment for the future."
