Mark Webber Biography
Born in New South Wales on 27 August 1976, Mark Webber is a nine-time Formula 1® Grand Prix winner and an FIA World Endurance Champion. Following successful stints in karting and Formula Ford in his native Australia, Webber moved to Europe to realise his dream of driving in F1®. He competed in British Formula Ford, Formula 3, Sports-cars and then Formula 3000 where his good results and pace landed him an F1 test drive with Benetton.
Webber made his F1 debut with Minardi in 2002, where he managed to hang on in a race of attrition to take 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 to drives with the newly-rejuvenated Jaguar Racing team and subsequently Williams F1. After moving to Red Bull Racing in 2007, Mark took 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 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.
After retiring from Formula 1® at the end of 2013, Webber won the World Endurance Championship with Porsche. Outside of motorsport, Webber has recently launched his own clothing range and is also a qualified helicopter pilot.
