Mark Webber believes he made the right decision to jump from Formula 1 to the World Endurance Championship as he admits he's not missing the sport he raced in for 13 years.

The Australian could have ended up at Ferrari for several years after discussions between him and the Italian team almost saw him partner Fernando Alonso in 2013.

However he says he's glad he chose to end the talks and made the right decision to retire the following season to join Porsche's WEC team.

"This is really where I see my future," he wrote in his column for Autosport.

"I wanted to do something different; there was the chance to go to Ferrari the year before, which might have been interesting, but I'm very glad I ended up here."

The 37-year-old admitted watching his home race on the television was difficult, but he no longer misses F1.

"I couldn't be happier at the moment and F1 isn't something I miss at all," he added.

"The first race, at Melbourne, was a little tricky but now I'm over that and it's good to have your life back."
