Webber 'loves' Japan GP

Mark Webber is keen to impress at the forthcoming Japanese Grand Prix.

The Australian driver, who is currently leading the championship, admits that he enjoys the Suzuka track and is hoping to secure maximum points to make up for last year's disappointing performance in Japan.

"It's not often these days that you can take a Formula One car to a circuit and feel the track is in charge of the car -it's usually the other way around," said the Red Bull driver, reports AFP.

He added: "It's a real top-drawer circuit for us drivers and our car should be pretty quick there."

Webber is 11 points ahead of former champion Fernando Alonso, with Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel and Jensen Button also still in with a chance of a strong finish if they perform well for the rest of the season.

There are four races left in this year's championship – Japan, Korea, Brazil and Abu Dhabi.
