Webber, Vettel will get equal treatment in 2013: Red Bull boss

Red Bull racing boss Christian Horner has said three-time world champion Sebastian Vettel will not receive preferential treatment ahead of Mark Webber this year.

Webber has openly wondered about his preferential treatment as far back as 2010, but Horner said until one driver began to show a clear winning trend compared to the other, the 36-year-old Australian would be given the same options as Vettel, reports the Herald Sun.

Horner said Mark has been with team seven years, and he knows he'll get equal treatment, that's why he's chosen to stay with Red Bull.

Webber said he anticipated it would be a tough season, with rival teams pushing Red Bull harder than last year, when they ended 60 points clear of Ferrari. He said the team needed to adjust the car's tendency to understeer when going around bends.

Horner said last year had taught him how vital an ingredient consistency was. He said mechanical reliability needed to combine with driver consistency for results to be maximised. (ANI)
