ASTON Clinton racer Mark Webber was just 0.2 seconds off pole as he qualified fourth in a hotly contested race for grid positions on Saturday.

Speaking after qualifying, where Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button secured a McLaren one-two, the Aussie said: “It wasn’t too bad, we had a reasonable run. In Melbourne we were a bit stronger in the race than in qualifying and looking at the gap to pole today, it seems we are two or three tenths off, which is a step in the right direction.

“We will re-group and have a look at how we go tomorrow. We’ve made progress with the car from Melbourne though.

“It’s tight between the first four rows, there’s some very good performances going on from quite a few teams – it’s good for the fans.”
