Mark Webber reckons the title battle is still wide open © Sutton Images

Red Bull's Mark Webber insists he will not become complacent now that he has regained the lead in the drivers' championship.

After a string of good results earlier in the season, Webber led the championship for two races before being overtaken by McLaren's Lewis Hamilton after the Canadian Grand Prix. His win at the Hungaroring last weekend has again put him at the top of the standings, but he insists the title battle is still wide open with seven races remaining.

"It's good to be leading the points standings, but there are still a lot of chapters to come in this world championship battle," he told his official website. "The top five drivers are separated by 20 points, which is nothing. It's the equivalent of just eight points under last year's points system. There's everything to play for, but not until I've turned my phone off and had a couple of weeks' holiday."

Red Bull boss Christian Horner said that his team would go into the four-week summer break ahead of the Belgian Grand Prix its head held high.

"A one-three finish puts us in the lead of the drivers' and constructors' championships going into the summer break, which will give the team a chance to recharge their batteries in preparation for what will be a very intense final third of the championship."
