Red Bull’s Mark Webber is looking forward to next weekend’s Korean Grand Prix because he likes the half-permanent, half-street circuit layout.

The Australian driver goes into the race with a 10-point grid penalty hanging over him as punishment for the ‘taxigate’ incident at the end of last week’s Singapore Grand Prix when Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso gave him a lift back to the pits on his car.

Webber, who will be leaving Formula One at the end of this current season, is still relishing the race given that he started on pole position last year before finishing second behind team-mate Sebastian Vettel.

The only negative for Webber is the fact the Korean Grand Prix is one of the worst-attended races on the Formula One calendar.

Webber said: “I like the layout of the circuit in Korea. The atmosphere at the track isn’t great because there aren’t many spectators, but the track’s got some challenging sections and some good corners.

“The last sector in particular is fun because it has a nice flow to it and the walls are pretty close, so you have to be very accurate with your line.”
