Webber says team must be united

6:00 am on 2 June 2010

Formula One championship leader Mark Webber has called on Red Bull to be united as they look to recover from the disastrous finale to the Turkish Grand Prix.

The team were on course for a one-two finish when Sebastian Vettel attempted an overtaking move, collided with Webber and crashed out of the race.

The drivers blamed each other for the crash, but Webber is now keen for the team to put the incident behind them.

The Australian says they need to bounce back and be united as a team, and keep going.

Webber, who now leads the standings by only five points, said the team could have dealt with the fallout from the crash better.

He says the team, collectively with the drivers, all of them have to learn how to deal with these situations maybe better in the future.

Webber's comments came as team principal Christain Horner insisted that both drivers will continue to receive equal billing within the team.
