Mark Webber has played down reports he has already decided to quit Formula 1 at the end of this season.
The British tabloid Daily Star claimed last weekend that the Australian “has told close friends” that 2013 is his twelfth and final season on the grid.
The report seemed to tie in with rumours Webber, 36, has agreed a deal to return to Le Mans next year with Porsche.
But he is quoted by Russia’s Formula 1news.ru: “It (Le Mans) is an interesting category, but it’s not for me. At the moment I’m still focused on Formula 1. There are always a lot of rumours, some strange ones, but I don’t pay much attention to it.”
