Jun.10 (GMM) Mark Webber on Thursday insisted he can still work at Red Bull alongside Dr Helmut Marko.

Two weeks ago, it was the team's Austrian consultant Marko who began blaming Australian Webber for the crash with his teammate Sebastian Vettel in Turkey.

It raised the suspicion that the team's powerful German-speaking faction favours youngster Vettel over Webber, but all parties sat down for a clear-the-air meeting at Milton-Keynes last week.

"I had a good chat with Helmut at the factory. He's fine," Webber, 33, told reporters at Montreal's Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

He was asked what he thought about Marko immediately blaming him for the crash, while many pundits within the paddock believe it was Vettel's fault.

"Helmut wasn't fully up to speed with all the facts at the time. He went pretty quick with his comments, which he's learned from and will move on," said Webber.

Also revealing that he had a "very positive" phone conversation with team owner Dietrich Mateschitz since the incident, Webber said he understands Marko's tilt towards 22-year-old Vettel's side of the garage.

"He brought Seb along, he speaks the language, so you can expect a bit of emotional support that way. But I'm fine with that.

"Helmut has been ... there are a lot of things that have happened with this team through his support, and I've been off the back of that as well," added Webber.

Vettel's media scrum on Thursday was an uncomfortable one for the 22-year-old, with some reporters pushing the German hard to issue an apology.

When it became clear that no apology would be forthcoming, one questioner asked him if, like his countryman Michael Schumacher, he finds it difficult to admit his mistakes.

"The way that I grew up and the way that I am, honesty is something that is very important to me. You can ask anybody in the garage, if I make a mistake in qualifying then I am the first to raise my hand and blame myself.

"I am open for self-criticism and I try to improve myself. I'm not jumping out of the car and saying this is a shit car if I couldn't do better," said Vettel.

"If from my side something isn't right I raise my hand and stand up. I have no problem with that and it's one important thing in life otherwise it will always come back to you," he added.
