Webber's engine gets all-clear

Mark Webber, Red Bull, Monza 2010Red Bull Racing has given Mark Webber's Renault engine the all-clear following the Australian's problems in final practice at Monza this morning.

Webber's car came to a halt at the first chicane on its 10th lap, ending his session, and prompting fears of an engine problem prior to qualifying.

But team boss Christian Horner told AUTOSPORT that the issue was a minor airbox fire and that there would be no serious consequences.

The incident was the second to stop Webber in a practice session this weekend, following his water pressure issue on Friday afternoon.
