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.

Congrats to Mark, his partner Ann and all his family, they have all worked bloody hard for so many years for this great result. And it was so good to see his first pole and win LIVE on OneHD – in the first race they broadcast in this area!

Most excellent, awesome, can’t wait to see how he goes from here now.

Cooooooool!!!!

Awesome … to have a drive-through penalty to boot, there wouldn’t have been many drivers able to pull that off!

IIRC Michael Schumacher was the last driver to win after a drive through penalty.

Awesome, especially since his injuries last year and to have a drive-through penalty to boot, there wouldn’t have been many drivers able to pull that off!

He’s third at the moment – and the Brawns are faltering…..

Where is he coming in the Championship after this?

punkarella 10:24 am 13 Jul 09

I’m pitching myself. What a great race, that drive thru was heart wrenching. But well done Mark, bring it on Brawn!

Does this signal the end of the seemingly eternally popular ‘Mark Webber bashing’ from the ignorant commentariat?

Well in the Post Race Media thing, he did say something like “….there were those that doubted me hello……”

A very good drive and some very good tactics. For the first time in his career, Webber has landed a seat in a team on the up, and had an equal in Vettel as a team mate.

If BrawnF1 don’t get their act back together (or have a little bad luck), Webber could potentially be battling for the WDC in the last couple of rounds.

Thankyou Queanbeyan!

Holden Caulfield 9:36 am 13 Jul 09

Such an awesome result!

grundy 9:34 am 13 Jul 09

As stated in the other thread…

“WOOOoooooooooooo!!!”

George 9:25 am 13 Jul 09

People were out in Queanbeyan last night doing street racing and burn outs.
