Webber to leave F1 at the end of season

SILVERSTONE, United Kingdom: Mark Webber on Thursday confirmed what many close observers suspected when he announced that he will be leaving Red Bull and Formula One at the end of this season to switch to sportscar racing with Porsche’s LMP1 team. The Australian, who will be 37 in August, has been expected to make a move ever since his Red Bull team-mate, triple world champion Sebastian Vettel, disobeyed team orders to “steal” victory from him at the Malaysian Grand Prix in March. Webber made the announcement by posting a Porsche statement on his website markwebber.com.
