Distraught Webber hopes to hit the surf

 Even catching a few waves on his surfboard back home in Australia might not be enough to assuage Mark Webber's fury at the way his team mate Sebastian Vettel stole victory from him at the Malaysian Grand Prix.

The incident laid bare once more the issue of his place at the team he has raced for since 2007, alongside Vettel since 2009.

Webber has always maintained that he should be his German team mate's equal in the race for the world title but often suspected that was not the case.

"They know that I need 100 percent support," he said at the launch of the RB9 in February.
Sunday's incident clearly gave Webber plenty of food for thought. "There were a lot of things going through my head in those closing laps," he said. "Not just from today, but from the past as well."

Webber, who turned down an offer from Ferrari to stay with the team on a one-year deal, has plenty of time to think about his future at Red Bull and perhaps even in Formula One with the third race of the season in Shanghai not until April 14.

"This time tomorrow I'll be catching a few waves on my surfboard and reflecting on everything that's happened," he said. "I hope the weather's good."
