Webber: I can still win the title
Mark Webber threw away his point lead in Korea
Mark Webber insists he can still win the title despite watching his lead in the Drivers' Championship turn into an 11-point deficit in Korea.

The Australian started the inaugural Korean GP 14 points ahead of team-mate Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari's Fernando Alonso but he crashed out on lap 19 following a driver error.

Alonso went on to take the checkered flag to move onto 231 points in the Drivers' standings. Webber is second on 220 with Lewis Hamilton a further 10 points adrift after a second place in Korea.

When asked by the BBC if he can still win the title, Webber said: "Absolutely. Positions are not really important at the moment, the points are the important thing. 

"They can change very quickly and this is my second non-finish of the year, but there are still two races to go and I will do my absolute best."

Webber, though, was quick to hold his hand up after his accident which saw him collect Nico Rosberg on the way.

"Totally my fault," he said. "I got a wheel on the curb on the exit of Turn 12 and it was a very slow motion moment off the back of it. Totally my mistake. Today isn't my day.

"It was a very long one (slide), frustrating. I thought I had done enough but in the end it wasn't enough. The wall obviously was close and did some damage and then I wrecked Nico's race as well.

"It brings me back to them on points and we are all back together again so we go to the final two races."
