"After such a good day yesterday, I was very quick," he said.
"There are options but we have to get on top of the problems first. We can't race the cars like this, it's 16 or 17 seconds of [total] race time."
Red Bull team principal Christian Horner said: "With Mark we had a disastrous session. We lost electrical supply to the gearshift so he lost the quick-shift and the Kers and that's minus 0.8secs and just to get to q3 was a massive result for him.
"That's why we elected not to run to take a strategic approach so we have freedom of tyre choice tomorrow [Sunday]."
Drivers that get into the top 10 shoot-out and set a lap time have to start the race on the tyre they qualified on.
Not doing so means Webber can now choose whether to start the race on the harder 'medium' tyre - as he is most likely to do - or run the less durable 'soft', which the top eight will be on.
