Stuck praises 'heroic' Webber
Former Formula One driver and VW advisor Hans-Joachim Stuck has jumped to the defence of Mark Webber after Red Bull team boss Christian Horner revealed his 'disappointment and frustration' at the Australian driver.
It emerged on Tuesday that Webber completed the last four races of the season with a broken shoulder but hid his injury from his bosses.
"Of course he has obligations to his employer but it cannot have been very bad," Stuck told the SID news agency.
On the contrary, Stuck described Webber's performances racing in pain during the critical final races as 'absolutely heroic'.
"To have that handicap and still show such good performance, I tip my hat to him. Without doubt he did everything possible to try to become world champion."
