Mar.13 (GMM) Mark Webber has denied that, at the age of 31 and with six full seasons of formula one behind him, he might be beginning to think about retirement.
Red Bull's Australian driver is yet to win a grand prix despite more than 100 race starts, but he reckons there are plenty of years left to achieve his goals."I'm 31 and Damon Hill won his first championship when he was 34 so there's time," he told Melbourne's Herald Sun in the city."I might go to 40."I've got another few years ahead hopefully and hopefully I've got a few results to get before it's all over," Webber added.Webber thinks he would be a race winner in a top car like the Ferrari, but admits that only if he gets the chance could he boast about proving it."I would be very disappointed if I was not able to (win races) if I was given a Ferrari," he wrote in his BBC column this week."Whether I could operate at Kimi Raikkonen's level for a whole season is another question, and that's what I'd like to find out."Most drivers are incredibly even but just like any sport, it is about consistency, the guys who can do it week in, week out," he wrote.
