Few current drivers polarise opinion to the same extent that Webber does, but whatever you might think lies behind his 'unlucky' tag, there's no escaping his track record for dragging mediocre cars above their station. If the RB5 is any good, then perhaps this year he won't have to, and any remaining questions about his talent can be answered once and for all.

But Webber will face the challenge of his career in going up against Sebastian Vettel in the same machinery. Yet battling against hyped-up team-mates is something Webber has done plenty of times before in his career - and he will relish the opportunity to finally prove to the world just what he is capable of.
