Mark Webber is hoping to bounce back from a couple of disappointing results at last two races to challenge for victory at the Belgian Grand Prix.

After winning at the British Grand Prix, Webber finished eighth at the German and Hungarian Grands Prix after two difficult races from lowly grid positions. However, he is confident he can be back at the front at Spa Francorchamps this weekend after Red Bull secured a one-two at the circuit last year.

"It's one of the classic tracks where you feel like an F1 car belongs on the circuit," Webber said. "We're looking forward to going there and challenging for the victory."

Webber pulled off one of the overtaking moves of the season at last year's race when he slipped past Fernando Alonso into Eau Rouge.

"Spa is the best track to have after a break and it's extremely rewarding for drivers at that venue," Webber added. "It's obviously remained pretty much unchanged for some time and it has a lot of character. Eau Rouge is a very special part of the track, the spectators love going to watch the cars there and I would encourage anyone to see it live once in their lives - it's mind blowing."
