Mark Webber was left frustrated in British Grand Prix qualifying after Sebastian Vettel received the only remaining example of the new front wing Red Bull has brought for Silverstone.
Only two of the wings are available this weekend, and one was broken when Vettel's became detached at the end of final practice. But the team decided, based on championship positions and final practice pace, that Vettel should take the remaining new wing for qualifying, while Webber stuck with the older specification.
When asked for his opinion on the wing situation, a clearly unhappy Webber replied: "I think the team is happy with the result today." He added that he would far rather be starting third on the grid than second.
"I would rather be third on the grid probably, we know second on the grid at most sides is s***," said Webber. "If Fernando [Alonso] wants to change, we will see if we can."
Vettel denied that the team had shown favoritism towards him in the allocation of the wing, and said the difference between the two specs was not that big.
"I think in the end if you look back to the qualifying session it was extremely tight," he said. "In Q1 we were pretty much the same, in Q2 I was struggling and in Q3 I was ahead. I don't think it is a black and white answer on the wing."
