Mark Webber is confident he will be in the hunt for victory in the Belgian Grand Prix despite not converting his practice pace into a pole position.
The Australian had been quickest in two out of the three practice sessions at Spa, although all three had been rain-affected to some extent, but ended up third after qualifying. Webber felt he had been too aggressive at the end of the session, which took place in drying conditions.
"It was a close session, I think probably went a bit too hard," said Webber. "I felt comfortable. You never know if the lap you are on is going to be 'the' lap, and as soon as we finished qualifying it started to rain again."
The Red Bull driver said he could not be disappointed with third when other drivers had fared much worse, including Hungary winner Jenson Button, who was way back in 13th.
"Let's see how it goes, we have had a very smooth weekend, and it's easy to end up like Jenson Button, to be out of position," said Webber. "We are in a position, it would be nice to be a bit further up but the guys did a good job and we are in the hunt tomorrow for a good race."
