Happy Webber Confident of More Points

Australian Mark Webber was encouraged following his third point-scoring result of the season at today's Canadian Grand Prix.

The Jaguar star won two more points for the Milton Keynes-based outfit after finishing in seventh position for the third consecutive time this year. Webber was pleased with the result and admitted he felt confident of scoring more points in the future.

"Yet again the Jaguar has come home strong today and proved its pace against the front runners," said Webber. "Because of the terrible weather this weekend, we have suffered from limited dry running and given this, the team did an excellent recovery job to help pull-off a seventh place finish today.

"The direction and approach this team is adopting is paying dividends and as long as we continue to maintain this upward curve, I'm sure more points will follow quite soon."

Brazilian Antonio Pizzonia failed to shine after a difficult race in which he finished in 10th position four laps down.

"A frustrating end to what should have been a good race for me," said the Brazilian. "We came very close to having both Jaguars finish today but my brakes were completely worn towards the end and I had no choice but to call it a day on the penultimate lap.

"Team wise, we have learned an incredible amount this weekend and in addition, we have two more championship points to take away with us. A tough weekend but one which ended-up with reward in the end."

OPINION: Formula 1 reconvenes for the Russian Grand Prix two weeks after the latest blow in ‘Max Verstappen vs Lewis Hamilton’. While the Silverstone and Monza incidents were controversial, they thankfully lacked one element that so far separates the 2021 title fight from the worst examples of ugly championship battles

How F1’s other champion to emerge from 1991 thrived at Lotus

Mika Hakkinen became Michael Schumacher’s biggest rival in Formula 1 in the late-90s and early 2000s, having also made his F1 debut in 1991. But as MARK GALLAGHER recalls, while Schumacher wowed the world with a car that was eminently capable, Hakkinen was fighting to make his mark with a famous team in terminal decline
