Budapest: Australian Mark Webber slammed his Red Bull team on Saturday after suffering what he called ongoing 'stupid and embarrassing' problems with his car in qualifying for Sunday's Hungarian Grand Prix. While his Red Bull team-mate defending triple world champion German Sebastian Vettel was beaten to pole by a sizzling lap from Briton Lewis Hamilton in a Mercedes, Webber was giving vent to his frustration.
Electronic problems once again played havoc with his efforts and prevented his car's KERS from working and upset the car's gearshift system. Webber battled the problems and made his way through the first two parts of qualifying, but did not run in the top ten shootout and qualified 10th.
He said: "KERS, gearbox, you name it... driving the car so far off the potential is unbelievable and so massively frustrating. "It's stupid, it's embarrassing and it's a brutal circuit to be out of position.
