A match made in heaven?
Webber has always seemed like an old head on young shoulders. So the combo should be very interesting. I think they will probably get on really well and bring the team forward a long way, which will certainly help the junior team.
Mark might think that he’s joining the next Ferrari or Toyota and joining at the right moment to get a team built around him. And with the team that they have there he might be right. But can it work untested like that? I suppose for Mark it has to be the situation that he had been in “new and interesting” with Ford and Jaguar and it didn’t work out but it was moving, and then he went to “tried and tested” with Williams and it didn’t work. But now he’s back where he started. Red Bull is the successor of Jaguar, and a large section of the team is the same. And armed with that info it is – perhaps – less surprising than it seems. To me he never fell out of love with that team and always wanted to finish what he had started. And now with the real backing and resources that they have. And Adrian Newey designing the car. Next year should be really interesting for the team.
