After 130 race starts, Mark Webber has achieved his first Pole Position at the German Formula 1! In an exciting and weather affected qualifying, Mark finally accomplished his career ambition to achieve a F1 pole position. Mark has had 4 podium finishes in 2009 and is currently in 4th place in the 2009 F1 season on 35.5 points after 9 rounds.
This from Formula1.com: "Mark Webber took his first pole position after changeable weather contributed to a gripping Q3 shootout at the Nurburgring on Saturday, which saw the Australian, Red Bull team mate Sebastian Vettel, the Brawns of Rubens Barrichello and Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton’s McLaren all in contention for the top slot. First it was Hamilton’s. Then Button’s, before Webber’s 1m 32.230s put him ahead. Vettel’s 1m 32.480s momentarily placed him second before Button’s 1m 32.473s earned him P2, but immediately Barrichello’s 1m 32.357s lap finally gave the Brazilian second place."
Now the big question is after 3 second place finishes this year can Mark go number 1? We certainly think so! Aussie, Aussie, AUSSIE!!!
