Grand Prix winner and FIA World Endurance Champion, Mark Webber is one of motorsport’s most popular and high-profile figures.
He made his F1 debut with the Minardi Team in 2002, where in a race full of attrition he managed to hang on in there and grabbed fifth place at the flag scoring the team’s first points in three years. His ability to push a car beyond its limits opened the door for him to sign with the newly rejuvenated Jaguar Racing team and subsequently WilliamsF1. After moving to Red Bull Racing in 2007, Webber had his first F1 win in the 2009 German Grand Prix, which he described as the proudest moment of his career.
Throughout his 12 years in F1, Mark Webber notched up 215 races, nine victories – most notably becoming a double winner of both the prestigious Monaco and British Grands Prix – and accumulated an impressive tally of 42 podium finishes, 13 pole positions and 19 fastest laps. He also helped Red Bull Racing to four consecutive Constructors’ World Championships.
At the end of 2013 he rejoined sports-car racing as part of Porsche’s return to the LMP1 class of the FIA World Endurance Championship in 2014. Webber and his teammates, Brendon Hartley and Timo Bernhard built a strong relationship over three seasons and together they amassed 14 podiums (eight of them victories) helped Porsche to the World Manufacturers Title twice, and became World Drivers’ Champions in 2015.
Mark Webber decided the time was right for him to retire from racing at the end of the 2016 WEC season. His relationship with Porsche remains strong however, as he remains their special representative.
