Webber bags his first F1 win!

Following on from the excitement of Quangers’ Mark Webber getting pole position in the German Grand Prix, the BBC informs us that the local lad has gone and won the thing!

    Webber is one of the most popular drivers in F1 and he has certainly paid his dues to get to where he is.

    There are other drivers who don’t like his outspokenness or feel some of his Aussie aggression sometimes goes a little bit too far but they, too, would say he fully deserves his place among Formula 1’s winners.

Good on Webber, an awesome achievement.

F1 footage on YouTube is usually closed down pretty quickly. I’m surprised that clip lasted so long.

It’s on YouTube … for now, anyway:

I think they censored it for the Ten broadcast, even though it went to air about 1.10am (conclusion).

Good to hear he’s still an Aussie at heart. Did that go to air?!?! :O

It did on OneHD’s live coverage. Not sure if Ten edited it on the later version.

I was very surprised to hear the uncensored version on News Radio this morning, though!

Must be something about the German GP. Two years ago when Webber was chasing Lewis Hamilton and looking set for at least second, and a possible win, he got punted off by Sebastien Vettel under safety car conditions. When he was interviewed in the pits a bit later he let out the f-bomb on live TV then as well.

From memory he said something like “It’s kids isn’t it (referring to Vettel who was in his first year of F1). They come in here with no experience and just f–k it up.”

Ironic, then, that young Vettel is Webber’s teammate and now has three F1 wins to his name. 😛

AFL, F1 and pro cycling have all gone a bit metrosexual this week.
