Mark Webber's Driver Bio

His Twitter username ‘AussieGrit’ sums up Mark Webber’s racing personality. A determined driver who loves an ontrack fight.  His natural speed and racing talents have seen Webber as a part of the title challenge on several occasions.

One of the more outspoken drivers on the grid who drives with his feelings on his sleeve. A strong belief in fighting for glory, Webber repeatedly refuses to ‘gift’ his place to teammate and title winner Sebastian Vettel. This has seen Webber take criticism from Red Bull management, most notably after the 2011 Turkish Grand Prix which saw the two collide, gifting a 1-2 finish to championship rivals McLaren.

After 12 seasons in Formula One, Mark Webber announced his retirement. With a contract in place to race in the Le Mans series for Porshe’s new LMP1 programme.
