Webber looking for a strong weekend

THE European Formula 1 season fires up in Barcelona tomorrow and Mark Webber is hoping to be red-hot on a track where he's tasted success in the past.

The Australian has started on pole for the past two years in Spain, and won in 2010 at a circuit where the top slot has translated into victory in 10 of the last 11 races, and knows he has the car to do it again.

"I like the Barcelona track, we do a lot of work there and it's a track that's been good to me in the past... so I'm looking for a strong weekend," he said.
