Red Bull Racing's Mark Webber feels his mindset has changed for the better in the wake of his maiden Formula 1 victory - even if he reckons his car is not as strong this time out in Hungary.
Webber took a popular win at the Nurburgring two weeks ago as his Red Bull outfit showed it had the pace to be a serious threat to Brawn GP's world championship ambitions.
And although the track characteristics and weather conditions do not suit the RB5 as much as recent events, he thinks that his approach to the weekend has been changed for the better by his triumph.
When asked if he felt any different after his win, Webber said: "Yeah, probably do. It definitely hasn't hurt my confidence to be the chased rather than the chaser and pulling it off was very good for me.
"You're constantly now looking at: are you the quickest? It changes your mindset a bit because you always want to be in a position to win the race. Until you've done it you're confident it's possible but you don't know it's possible. When you've done it, you know it is."
Webber thinks that the indications from first practice suggest things will be very tight at the Hungaroring – with even Red Bull and Brawn's early season dominance under threat.
"We're in the hunt, for sure," said Webber. "I don't think we're off the pace. We're part of the pace. But as expected here it looks like there's a few more boys coming to the party.
"There's McLaren. Brawn, Ferrari, Toyota. There's loads of guys. It's a short track and it's very repetitive in terms of corners. It won't be this tight in Suzuka where the good cars have a chance to use their aerodynamics."
