A second-place finish in his final race in Formula 1 wasn’t quite the fairytale ending that Mark Webber had in mind for his final season in the sport.
Webber announced back in June only days before the British Grand Prix on BBC Sport that he was to quit F1 at the end of the season to join Porsche’s new sportscar programme.
His high-profile clashes with wonderkid Sebastian Vettel, including the “Multi-21” team orders controversy in Malaysia at the start of the year, may have had something to do with his decision.
In truth, however, and despite some misfortune with technical issues and retirements, he has not been a match for Vettel or Fernando Alonso this year and not mustered a single race victory in unquestionably the class car of the field.
While he did score more points this season, the quality of the opposition from McLaren, Ferrari and Lotus was much stronger in 2012, and he would have expected a stronger finish to his F1 career.
