MARK WEBBER has indicated he is in no rush to sign a new contract with Red Bull.

In the wake of his two wins within a week in Spain and Monaco, the Austrian team has indicated it is keen to re-sign the 33-year-old for 2011.

But Australian Webber has also been linked recently with a switch to Ferrari, and he told Britain's Daily Mail newspaper that he is not certain who his employer will be next year.

"I've just won two races, back-to-back, and people are asking me where I'm going to drive next year," said the joint championship leader.

"I'm very close to the guys at Red Bull, we've been through a lot, and I have a great relationship with them. Yet things happen and change very fast in this business, and you never know what's around the corner," added Webber.

Interestingly, after boss Christian Horner and advisor Helmut Marko commented on Webber's situation post-Monaco, team owner Dietrich Mateschitz is now quoted as wading in on the status of Sebastian Vettel's current teammate.

"They have different personalities, but when they go into battle they are winners," the Austrian billionaire told Germany's Bild am Sonntag.

Mateschitz also described Webber as a "stereotype of the fair, athletic sportsman".

Pirelli On Pole For 2011 F1 Tyre Supply: Report

A MEETING of the Technical Working Group did not result in a decision about F1's tyre supplier for 2011.

Germany's Auto Motor und Sport, however, reports that Pirelli has moved into pole position for the contract, even though recent rumours suggested both the Italian marque and Michelin were offering to supply tyres for 1.5m euros per team.

Earlier this week, representatives of Pirelli met with F1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone.

Meanwhile, in the wake of the technical directors' meeting, it emerges that the new tyre supplier and the ban on double diffusers will not be the only technical changes for 2011.

The magazine said the main area of attention, apart from the return of KERS, is aerodynamics. Pending the approval of the FIA, the bodywork ahead of the sidepods, and the flow aids under the chassis, are to disappear.

It is also expected that the front wings will be smaller, while the front wing adjustors could be replaced by adjustable rear wings.
