ROUGH WEEKEND: Red Bull's Mark Webber was sent to the back of the grid in qualifying after a fuel issue and then had an incident in the 2013 Chinese F1 GP but he lost a wheel before he could pit. Image: AFP

SHANGHAI, China - First no fuel in qualifying, then without a wheel in the race. Mark Webber ended a dismal 2013 Chinese F1 GP with his Red Bull rolling into retirement while a rear tyre bounced across the track.

The Australian lasted just 18 of the 56 laps after starting from the pits lane because Red Bull failed to put enough fuel in his car for Saturday's (April 13) qualifying,

In that short time he pitted twice and broke a front wing in a collision with the Red Bull-owned Toro Rosso of Frenchman Jean-Eric Vergne.


The afternoon was in stark contrast to the previous GP in Malaysia where he led until World champion team mate Sebastian Vettel ignored instructions from the pits wall not to overtake and denied him victory.

The feud between the team mates was the talk of the Shanghai paddock in the run-up to the race but they never came close to racing each other, let alone being in a position for Webber to exact revenge.
