Webber welcomes timely victory
Mark Webber hailed his Monaco Grand Prix victory as timely as he thrust himself firmly into contention for this year's Formula One world title.
Webber had not led a lap nor stepped on to the podium prior to Sunday's triumph, the eighth of his career and second around Monaco in three years. The Australian has hauled himself alongside Red Bull team-mate Sebastian Vettel, with the duo three points adrift of championship leader Fernando Alonso.
After a run of four fourth-placed finishes to start the season and failing to score in Spain a fortnight ago, Webber said: "This is timely off the back of a difficult weekend for us in Barcelona."
He continued: "A few small things we got wrong, and ultimately we paid for that with no points in Barcelona.
"Up until then, generally, we had got the maximum out of most weekends, and that was the case this weekend, and that's all we can keep doing.
"In Shanghai, Nico (Rosberg) was untouchable; in Barcelona the Williams (of Pastor Maldonado) was quick.
"So we need to be scoring all the time, and then when days like this come along you just cannot let them go at all.
"You have to grab them with both hands and feet and hang on to them like hell. That was the plan, but consistency is nice.
"Of course, wins are what win championships, so you need to win and then keep consistent."
