EVENT: Mark Webber Wins!

Mark Webber wins the German Formula 1!

After 130 races over a career of 8 years and 4 F1 teams, Mark Webber has won his first formula 1, the German F1! An Australian has not won a formula one race is almost 30 years so Mark's victory is not only an amazing personnel landmark but a huge milestone for Australian motorsport.

This from Formula1.com: ""Mark Webber you are a Grand Prix winner. Well done! Brilliant drive!" Those words, from Red Bull's engineers, told you all you needed to know about Sunday's German Grand Prix. No matter what they threw at the Australian, including a drive-through penalty for a brush off the startline with Brawn's Rubens Barrichello, Webber came through and delivered in devastating style. The day, belonged to Webber as Advance Australia Fair played at the end of a Grand Prix for the first time since Alan Jones won in Las Vegas back in 1981. It was superb victory in the most trying circumstances, and Webber thoroughly deserved his maiden success."

Congratulations Mark, now bring on Hungary and your next F1 victory! Aussie, Aussie, AUSSIE!!!
