Motor racing-Webber wants long term future with Red Bull

LONDON, Jan 23 (Reuters) - Mark Webber would be happy to see out his Formula One career with Red Bull, the Australian driver said on Friday.

“I am happy with Red Bull and I hope Red Bull will be happy with me,” the 32-year-old told the autosport.com website.

“If I keep my consistency and get everything out of the car, I will have no worries for the future. I plan to stay on with Red Bull long term. In fact I do not see me working with any other team.”

Webber, whose contract expires at the end of the year, will have young German Sebastian Vettel as his team mate this season.

The Australian, recovering from a broken leg he suffered in a bicycle accident in Tasmania in November, expected the team to do well and said he was on schedule to resume testing in Spain on Feb. 11.

“The car looks extremely good, we have all the key people for success. I am sure we will run with the top (teams) this year,” said Webber.

Renault-powered Red Bull were seventh last year. Webber has yet to win a race.
