Mark’s mates mate (well, most of ’em…)

He does say it. Frequently:  “He’s my mate’s mate, mate.”  And I guess that’s what I like most about Mark Webber. He’s your mate – and he’s a mate of your mates. Which means, in Australian, that he’s usually having a laugh and usually looking out for the next bloke. I’ll miss him in the F1 pit-lane, and on the circuit – but I’ll enjoy watching him next year with Porsche. In the meantime, and in addition to our interview with Mark on the show this week, here, in Mark’s own words, are some pen-portraits of some of the key figures from his career.  For more insight from the man himself, visit www.markwebber.com Read more…

The final race

I was fortunate to be able to spend a little time with Mark Webber as he prepared for his last F1 race – the Brazilian Grand Prix at Interlagos.  We met early on Friday morning, at the Grand Hyatt in Sao Paulo, and chatted together en route to the circuit.  Mark’s demeanour, I think, said it all:  he was happy with his decision to retire from F1;  equally, he is looking forward not only to some time off with family, friends and menagerie but also to a new challenge with Porsche in 2014.
