Mark tried for years to beat Seb and couldn't manage it, Daniel came into the team and done it straight away.
Steady on there.
Whilst there was a gulf in performance between Seb and Webber that started around mid-2010 (before that they were equal in 2 car finishes). Webber in early 2012 did have a similar amount of success against Seb that D,R has had so far this year. At least in accordance to raw stats
So far in the first 5 races of 2014, D.R has finished ahead of Seb in 2 car finishes 3 times. D.R has beaten Seb 4-1 in qualifying so far
In the first 6 races of 2012, Webber finished ahead of Seb in 2 car finishes 3 times. Webber also beat Seb 4-2 in qualifying during this period. Webber also held a points lead over Seb at this stage.
2012 ended with Seb convincingly beating Webber overall, despite Webber's strong start
It is premature to say that D.R is having more success than Webber ever had. In 2009, Webber matched Seb in 2 car finishes over a entire season. It remains to be seen if D.R can be as competitive over a entire campaign.
D.R has already had more success over Seb in 2014 than Webber managed over the entire 2011 and 2013 seasons combined. But Webber was a lot more competitive with Seb than people remember. Webber was a decent driver up until around 2010.
