EVENT COUNTDOWN

ALBERT PARK

12-15 MARCH 2015

Out On A High

On a weekend of Australian Ashes triumph in his beloved sport of cricket, Mark Webber declared his own superb innings over at 215 – and walked off the F1 field with his head held high.

Second place in Brazil and fastest race lap in his 215th and final Grand Prix was a typically proud way for Webber to bow out of the sport he has graced since his headline-grabbing debut for Minardi at Melbourne’s Albert Park circuit in 2002.

Let’s dispense with the statistics straight away.
