SHANGHAI, China - Red Bull driver Mark Webber has denied suggestions that he was about to quit the team and said he was looking forward to moving on from the 'team orders' controversy of the 2013 Malaysian Grand Prix.

Webber was incensed after team mate Sebastian Vettel ignored team instructions three weeks earlier at Sepang to snatch the lead and claim victory in the most contentious of circumstances.

Webber said in the immediate aftermath that he was heading back home to Australia and had plenty to think about, prompting speculation that he was considering his immediate future with the team.


He said: "First of all, I'm definitely keen to finish the season. A lot of people were even questioning that one, which was certainly not something in my mind.

"I'm fine. I was always going to Australia anyway after that race. Procedurally the team, everything, is fine. It was an interesting race in Malaysia but I'm looking forward to racing again. I think we've proved the car is pretty competitive - not dominating by any means, nobody is doing that yet."

Asked if he would accept a contract with Red Bull for the 2014 season, Webber said: "I'm keen to race this year and put together a very strong campaign. Come the (northern) summer I will speak to Dietrich (Mateschitz, Red Bull owner) and we will go from there.

"I've never made decisions in my career at this point of the season and I don't see why I should make any decisions at the moment for the future."
