Mark Webber showed he has lost none of his fight by finishing third in his penultimate Formula 1 start in Austin.
Webber had another bad first corner, dropping to fourth from his second starting spot, but after overtaking Lewis Hamilton he chased Romain Grosjean to the flag.
“I was very happy with how I drove today,” said Webber. “I got a very good start. You want to be on the outside for Turn 1 but Romain was already there. I think I made a very good start from the left-hand side, which is not the easiest here, so we did what we could. Lewis also was on the outside for clean braking, so I had to be a little bit careful with Seb on the inside. And then you’ve got to clear people, and you know when you’ve got to clear people you use tires, you use everything up.
