Webber: Frank wants speed

Mark Webber reckons that a simple show of speed will be the best way to develop a good working relationship with his 2005 bosses Williams chiefs Frank Williams and Patrick Head, though he admits he's spoken to old team favourite Alan Jones about it

Webber: Frank wants speed

"Well, I saw Alan in China," said Webber in the pre-Japanese Grand Prix press conference, "and he was full of advice on how to deal with Frank and Patrick and it's nothing that really surprised me, of course.

"They are racers, they're straight up and down, good people I believe, and that is why I am so motivated to go and drive there for the future. It's a dream for me, to drive for Williams, an absolute dream. The team has had a tough season this year, for lots of different reasons, and next year we have to go forward together.

"It's a great opportunity for me and getting on with Frank and Patrick, I am sure the lap times will help, that's one of the easiest ways to get on with them if you are performing in the car."

Webber also says that he's not too worried about hwo ends up being his team-mate at Williams next year.

"I am not really worried about who will be in the other car," he said, "that's how it is. I think it would be good if we had Jenson (Button), for Williams, but yeah, I just hope it is settled sooner rather than later."
