Mark Webber says that Red Bull's aim for the Hungarian Grand Prix weekend is not only to close the gap to rivals McLaren but also beat Ferrari.

"We still need to beat everyone. There are still a lot of points to go," said Webber. "We can't say we'll let Ferrari do their thing and we'll just concentrate on McLaren. We need to beat everyone and that's the plan this weekend - have a clean, perfect weekend and get as many points as we can. It needs to be a good weekend. We're not interested in leaving here with the gap opening. We need to close the gap here."

Ominously for Red Bull's rivals, Webber thinks the Hungaroring is a circuit that is well suited to his car's strengths but he is not underestimating McLaren after a difficult couple of races for the championship leaders.

"I think it's a very good track for our car. One of the best for us, I think. It's just one weekend at Hockenheim that wasn't an amazing weekend for McLaren in terms of pace. They got some points but there was some indication that there was another team that was very strong, and that was Ferrari. So we have another team at the party.

"It's good for you guys, it's interested for us to have a fight with more than one or two people. There are quite a few people who can win the race this weekend."
