Mar.15 (GMM) Mark Webber would like to join F1's growing army of Swiss residents.
The Red Bull driver and Australian, however, says he has no plans to move to the landlocked tax haven because his partner and her young son are settled in the UK."I would like to live in Switzerland," he told Auto Motor und Sport, "but Ann's small son keeps us in England."Webber, 31, says he is not a particular fan of his adopted British home."I could not live there permanently, because of the weather," he told the German magazine. "As an Australian it is pretty depressing."But because I am so often away, England is bearable," Webber laughed.Meanwhile, he clarified recent reports that he still sees Michael Schumacher as his all-time hero.Webber admits that he idolised the great German before entering F1 in 2002, when he "learned another side" of the seven time world champion."Some things he did, I don't understand," he explains. "He found it hard to admit his mistakes."Webber also says that when the drivers paid tribute to Schumacher in his last pre-race briefing in Brazil 2006, he refused their request to give a speech."He said nothing. I found that unfortunate," Webber says.
