Webber confirms with Red Bull for 2013

Mark Webber has announced a contract extension deal with Red Bull Racing that will see him line up on the grid in Melbourne next March with the current Championship leaders.

"I've been with Red Bull Racing since 2007 and have achieved nine grand prix wins during that time," he said yesterday.

Webber claimed the ninth win of his career on Sunday when he swept into the lead with just five laps to go in an incident-filled British Grand Prix.

This could be you!

Ever wondered what it is like to sit in the back seat of the Swisse F1 Two-Seater?

Pete Johns, from Melbourne, won a lap of the picturesque Albert Park circuit at the 2012 Formula 1™ Qantas Australian Grand Prix through the GP Advantage membership promotion.

On Saturday 26 March 2012, he put his life into Cam McConville’s hands and experienced life at 300km/h down Pit Straight.

"It was fantastic... an absolute dream," he said afterwards.

“I bought a ticket for the GP Advantage… I received a phone call and nearly fell off my chair!”

Webber Second In World Championship!

After a sensational European GP for Mark Webber, he now lies second in the World Championship to Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso ahead of Silverstone this weekend.

Alonso ended Formula One’s record run of different winners to take the championship lead by 20 points in a dramatic European Grand Prix under blue skies in Valencia.

After a hugely frustrating qualifying session on Saturday, in which a technical problem relegated Mark to 19th on the grid, he drove a fabulous race in his Red Bull Racing Renault at the picturesque street circuit to finish fourth.

Webber should consider Ferrari: Jones

Australia’s most recent Formula One World Champion Alan Jones says a possible move by Mark Webber to Ferrari would inject a “breath of fresh air” into the latter stages of his compatriot’s career.

Speaking to the Australian Grand Prix ‘Keeping Track’ podcast, Jones, the 1980 World Champion for Williams, says driving for Ferrari is something that every F1 driver craves, and that Webber should consider a stint at the famous Italian team should an opportunity arise.
