Three-time world champion Jack Brabham believes Red Bull Racing driver Mark Webber can win this year's championship.
Webber has moved into second place in the standings after finishing in third place at the Hungarian Grand Prix last weekend. The Australian is now 18.5 points behind Jenson Button, having reduced the gap to the Briton by 15 points in the last three races. His countryman Brabham reckons Webber can now go all the way and clinch the title.
"I certainly believe that Mark Webber can go all the way and win the World Championship – providing the car holds up," Brabham told the Associated Press. "It's fantastic to see Webber up there, he's doing a great job.
"You know, we've given Mark as much encouragement as we could as he's come along and it's lovely to see him doing well."
