Mark Webber is adamant he will improve his starts after seeing another race compromised by a poor getaway in Singapore.
The Red Bull driver has lost positions in the starts of the last six races, and he was forced to charge through the field again on Sunday after dropping down the order from second on the grid.
Webber, who finished in third behind teammate Sebastian Vettel and McLaren's Jenson Button, has vowed to get to the bottom of the situation to try to improve.
"Unfortunately, I find myself having to come through too often this season," said Webber. "I can't make the starts I did last year for some reason. We will look at them and definitely improve. It is risky to come back through and try to regain positions on track especially when the DRS is not working.
"I probably lost a position today. Seb clearly deserved the victory. If you come here and get podium, you would love a win. This is a very challenging venue.
"The guys have done a great job all weekend. It's not easiest track for me, it's challenging for a few of us."
Webber, yet to win a race this season, admitted he is eager to end his drought.
"I am looking forward to getting on the middle step sooner rather than later," he said. "There are still some positives to draw on, that is what we can do. I can be quickest at times, but that's not going to improve the feeling – in the end, that is what we got today. So I am pretty happy."
