In an article recently published by Red Bull, Webber opens up about his relationship with the recently crowned tripple world champion Sebastian Vettel. In past there has been some friction between the pair, particularly during the 2010 season, however the relationship of late has seemed stronger, Webber comments on it in his reply.
We’ve been up and down, probably like any relationship or marriage. Sometimes its great and sometimes you need to work at it a bit more. We obviously have good respect for each other. I think ultimately what’s at stake, its not possible for us to be super close but in general it’s good. It’s quite funny after India, apparently the German media were picking up on something where we were into each other big time and having huge problems with each other, but I was on Seb’s plane that night together travelling with him. With team-mates it’s always a testy relationship where I think you get closer when you stop. Its like with David Coulthard and myself, we were okay as team mates, good respect, but as soon as you stop the guard comes down and you are closer.
