driver profile

M.Webber
Mark Webber is one of the most respected drivers in Formula 1 owing to his skills both on and off the track. The Australian driver, who came close to clinch the drivers' championship in 2010, had a poor season the following year where he was unable to match his dominant teammate Sebastian Vettel. Webber's career in F1 has been a difficult one but he has stood resolute and gritty facing all the highs and lows he came across in a decade in the sport. Webber started his F1 career in 2002 with minnows Minardi and immediately made an impact scoring points in his debut race on home soil in Melbourne. His solid performances meant that he moved to Jaguar the following year and then to Williams in 2005, where he spent two seasons. Webber could hardly show what he was capable of in teams that refused to break the mid-field shackles but then in 2007, the door opened with Red Bull. After two seasons with the Milton Keynes-based team where he helped developed the car over the years, he finally achieved his maiden F1 win in 2009. That was enough to give him the confidence he needed and went by the following season as a serious contender for the title, until Vettel dashed his hopes. In 2011, Webber struggled again and could muster up only one win in the shadow of Vettel's dominance but regardless the Aussie grit can never be written off.
