He did it!
Mark Webber took his first F1 win at the Nurburgring circuit in Germany yesterday. Webber survived a dubious drive-through penalty to win the race in dominant fashion from team-mate Sebastien Vettel.
I’ve been following Mark’s progress since his days driving a Formula Ford car in Australia in the 1990s. It was obvious then that he is a prodigiously quick driver and that, with the right backing and circumstances, he could go far. Yesterday’s win was an exciting and delightful event for me.
Well done, Mark Webber. May this be the first of many wins.
