Welcome to another edition of the Morning Lap, a daily feature here at Beyond the Flag. Along with The Hub we want to bring you not only our original content but a collection of all the best racing news.
Red Bull Racing’s Mark Webber has decided to call time on his F1 career and will quit at the end of the 2013 F1 season, it has been claimed.
According to reports by British tabloid newspaper, The Daily Star, he has ‘confided in close friends’ about his intentions and he is ‘already making plans to leave Britain… to return home to Australia’.
It happens every season, where a driver or drivers who were expected to do well coming out of the gate from the season-opening Daytona 500, simply fall or worst, flop miserably.
The 2013 Sprint Cup season is no different, although the cast of characters may be. Drivers you thought for sure would have likely been in the top 10—if not the top 5—by now are struggling miserably just to get into the top 20.
